JOHANNESBURG - The mother of four-year-old Jasmin Pretorius says she wants to visit her daughter's convicted rapist and murderer in prison once he has been sentenced, to ask him certain questions.

Sarel du Toit confessed to strangling and raping his niece and hiding her body under his bed at the child's father's Brakpan apartment in December 2013.

He will be sentenced on Friday.

The High Court in Pretoria has heard that du Toit told a social worker earlier this year that he had not raped his niece, but only played with her.

But despite this, he pleaded guilty to a rape and murder charge this week.

Pretorius's mother Sasha-Lee Bam said, "Sarel denying it, he has a conscience to live with. He's got to live everyday with what he did to her and I hope that he gets what he deserves."

She said her daughter was fond of du Toit and trusted him.
