Army Sergeant ‘Tried To Kill’ His Wife By Sabotaging Her Parachute To Send Her Plunging 4,000ft To The Ground

Army sergeant Emile Cilliers and his new wife Victoria (centre and left) could not keep their hands off each other, according to guests at their luxurious ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa back in 2011.



But just six years later Mr Cilliers, 37, would stand accused of trying to murder his wife by gassing her with a faulty valve and then sabotaging her parachute during a sky dive (inset). A court has heard how the soldier tried to kill Victoria after meeting Stefanie Goller (shown bottom right) on dating app Tinder, during which time he was also in a sexual relationship with his ex-wife Carly Cilliers (top right).

After the gas incident, he allegedly suggested that his wife (bottom left) – an experienced parachutist and instructor – go parachuting the next weekend. But when Victoria went to jump from the aircraft, both her main and reserve parachutes failed and she fell the ground over Netheravon airfield in Wiltshire. Victoria survived the 4,000ft fall but was seriously injured – being left with broken ribs, a broken collarbone, a broken leg and spinal injuries – and spent three weeks in hospital.
