JOHANNESBURG - The trial of the man accused of killing three-year-old Luke Tibbetts continues in the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge this morning with the state expected to call its last witnesses who'll testify about order murder cases linked to Lindray Khakhu.

In August last year, Khakhu allegedly shot Tibbetts in the head while he was sitting on his mother's lap in car in Westbury.

A week into Khakhu's murder trial and the state has not yet dealt with the charges related to Tibbetts's shooting.

The state is expected to deal with this charge only later or even next week.

On Thursday, the court heard more details about Khakhu's alleged involvement in other murder cases, a year prior to Tibbetts's death.

Alton Mooi was killed in 2013.

Witnesses say they saw a man that looked like Khakhu with a firearm shortly after that shooting.

He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
