Emile Cilliers To Be Sentenced For Attempted Murder

An Army Sergeant is to be sentenced for the attempted murder of his wife by tampering with her parachute and sabotaging a gas valve at their home.

Emile Cilliers, of the Royal Army Physical Training Corps, was convicted by a jury, of two attempted murder charges and a third count of damaging a gas fitting, recklessly endangering life, following a retrial at Winchester Crown Court.

Cilliers, who had “out of control” debts racked up by taking his lover on expensive holidays, first attempted to kill his wife Victoria by tampering with a gas valve at their home in Amesbury, in Wiltshire, at the end of March 2015.

A few weeks later, Victoria Cilliers, a highly-experienced parachuting instructor, suffered near-fatal injuries when both her main and reserve parachutes failed when she took part in a jump at the Army Parachute Association at Netheravon, in Wiltshire, on Easter Sunday in 2015.
