'Modimolle Monster' case: Day 3
Johan Kotze will face another day of fierce questioning as his trial enters its third day.
PRETORIA - The man dubbed the Modimolle Monster is due to spend a third day on the stand in the North Gauteng High Court under cross-examination.
Johan Kotze has confessed to mutilating and torturing Ina Bonnette in January 2012.
But he denies shooting dead her 19-year-old son, Conrad, or ordering his three co-accused to rape her.
After being grilled on the stand on Wednesday by the defence of the co-accused, Kotze will on Thursday face more difficult questions by the prosecution.
Kotze was unable to answer questions about the day he attacked Bonnette and allegedly murdered her son, saying he was quite stressed and couldn't remember everything that happened.
He denied ordering his co-accused to rape Bonnette which backed up their claim that they didn't actually sexually assault her.
Kotze's daughter Jo-Marie, who had been listening to his testimony all day, burst into tears when he gave her a quick kiss on his way back to the cells.
She said despite everything she heard in court, Kotze was still her father.
