Convicted killer questioned in Theologo case
Jeremy King has contradicted himself several times while testifying in Kirsty Theologo’s murder trial.
JOHANNESBURG - One of the men convicted of killing Johannesburg teenager Kirsty Theologo on Wednesday told the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court he could not explain contradictions in his testimony.
Jeremy King testified against four others accused of assaulting the 18-year-old and her friend.
The suspects allegedly doused the pair with petrol and set them alight in an apparent satanic ritual in Linmeyer, south of Johannesburg.
The alleged ritual took place in October 2011.
Theologo died in hospital a week after being attacked.
According to King, suspect Courtney Daniels wanted to sacrifice Theologo a week after they started discussing Satanism.
But in his statement, King said Daniels suggested three weeks.
When asked which of the two statements was correct, King told the court he did not remember.
He also disputed claims that he was afraid to cut his hand to pour blood on a Bible as the statement read, saying he was determined to sell his soul.
King changed his version of events several times during Wednesday's testimony, prompting the defence lawyer to question his credibility.
