Kotze says he's famous in prison - doctor
A psychologist that analysed Johan Kotze says he boasted about his popularity in prison.
PRETORIA - A clinical psychologist told the North Gauteng High Court on Wednesday how Johan Kotze often boasted to her how popular he was in prison.
The man, known as the 'Modimolle monster', admitted to torturing and mutilating his ex-wife Ina Bonnette.
Kotze is also accused of murdering Bonnette's teenage son, Conrad and orchestrating her gang rape by his three co-accused.
He denies these charges.
Dr Tertia Spangenberg said Kotze's narcissism was illustrated by the fact that during her evaluation of him he emphasised how prison warders respected and listened to him.
When she tried to get him to talk about the incident during which Bonnette was attacked, he asked what incident she what referring to.
Spangenberg diagnosed Kotze as having a narcissistic personality disorder, major depression and also suffering from acute stress disorder when the attack happened.
She said in isolation, these conditions would not necessarily lead to the dissociation she claimed exonerates him from criminal culpability, but together they did.
