'Modimolle Monster' case: Day 2
Johan Kotze will be cross examined in what is expected to be an explosive day of testimony.
JOHANNESBURG - Another explosive day of testimony is expected in the Pretoria High Court on Wednesday as the cross examination of the man dubbed the Modimolle Monster continues.
Johan Kotze on Tuesday confessed to mutilating and torturing his estranged wife Ina Bonnette in the Limpopo town last January.
But he denied murdering her 19-year old son Conrad or orchestrating her gang rape by his three co-accused.
Kotze described many bizarre moments in his testimony to illustrate his anger at his estranged wife's alleged infidelity.
On the night he saw her with another man.
He said he went home and violently threw his kitten across the room in a fit of fury before cuddling the animal again.
He read from a series of rambling notes found in his abandoned vehicle following his arrest.
In it he partially blames Bonnette's son Conrad for the breakdown of their marriage calling him a soft terrorist.
Kotze wept as he denied that he shot dead the 19-year-old.
Bonnette, who sat in the public gallery wiped away tears when Kotze said this.
