In 2017, at only 15 years of age, Magai was convicted of murder and sentenced to death by hanging. The Court of Appeal quashed the death sentence on the basis that Magai was a child at the time of the crime and sent his case back to the High Court to rule on an appropriate sentence. But he remains at risk.
