The judge rejected the ex-cop’s version of events and said the State had proven its case beyond reasonable doubt, reports Eyewitness News.

The six victims were murdered between 2012 and 2018, most with the help of a hitman.

Ndlovu was also convicted of attempted murder (of her mother), incitement to commit murder, defeating the ends of justice and fraud.

She's thought to have cashed in R1.4 million in insurance payouts.
