PRETORIA - The North Gauteng High Court has heard that contradictory evidence was given in the trial of the man dubbed the 'Modimolle Monster' and his three co-accused.

Johan Kotze, Sello Phaka, Andries Sithole and Pieta Mohlake are alleged to have kidnapped, raped and attempted to murder Kotze's estranged wife Ina Bonnette in his rented Modimolle house on 3 January 2012.

Judgment is expected to be delivered today by Judge Bert Bam.

Kotze is accused of orchestrating the men to gang-rape her.

He also stands accused of murdering Bonnette's 19-year-old son Conrad.

The court heard that Kotze can remember standing with a firearm in his hand and that he can recall Bonnette's son Conrad begging him not to shoot him.

He however still denies killing Conrad.

Kotze has also denied instructing his three co-accused to gang rape his estranged wife.

Bonnette shook her head as Judge Bam read through Kotze's testimony.

Kotze's clinical psychologist has testified that he had a narcissistic personality disorder and wanted revenge after seeing Bonnette with another man.

However, the state's expert found that Kotze can indeed be held accountable for his actions.
