Bruno Bronn murder trial continues
The 50-year-old owner of a gay nightclub in Greenpoint was strangled in his home in 2012.
CAPE TOWN - A prosecutor in the Bruno Bronn murder trial has been trying to link two of the accused to the scene of the crime.
John Frederick Coetzer, Fareez Allie and Achmat Toffa have pleaded not guilty to killing and robbing Bronn in his Greenpoint home two years ago.
Bronn, the 50-year-old owner of once popular gay nightclub Bronx, was strangled to death.
Forensic pathologist Doctor Itumeleng Molefe was called up to the witness stand in the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday to explain the injuries two of the accused sustained before they were arrested in February 2012.
Molefe testified that Coetzer said he was hurt after falling and being kicked on two separate occasions.
After being questioned by the prosecutor, Molefe said there was a possibility Coetzer's injuries may have been caused by the rough carpeting in Bronn's home.
She also said there was a chance Allie's cuts may have been due to a broken window.
Brooklyn resident Monica Isaacs, who rented a room to the third accused Toffa, also testified that he, Coetzer and Allie frequented her flat where drugs such as tik were used.
