According to South African media reports, former Falcons player Zane Killian was arrested in Springs, Gauteng and charged with complicity in the murder.

Killian has officially been charged in connection with the murder of Lieutenant Colonel Charl Kinnear.

Kinnear, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Anti-Gang Unit, was shot and killed outside his home in Bishop Lavis on September 18, 2020.

Killian – who played professionally for the Eastern Province Kings, Falcons and Griquas – owns a tracking and investigations company.

He had allegedly tracked Kinnear’s cellphone for months and, according to sources close to the investigation, had been requested by a man who identified himself as ‘Mohamad’ to track the cellphone.

Killian made a brief appearance in the Bishop Lavis Magistrates’ Court on Friday.
