CAPE TOWN - Some De Zalze Estate residents say they're relieved Henri van Breda's trial is underway as it will provide closure to the triple murder case.

The 22-year-old is accused of killing his parents and older brother at their home outside Stellenbosch in January 2015.

He pleaded not guilty to all the charges as his trial started in the Western Cape High Court earlier this week.
The defence and prosecution did an in loco inspection of the house on Tuesday.

The National Prosecuting Authority in the Western Cape's Eric Ntabazalila says the site visit will create a better understanding of the crime scene.

He adds that assessing the home's security, viewing the bathroom where van Breda claims he was when he saw an intruder and visualising where the three bodies were lying, will help in interpreting the crime scene photographs.

Meanwhile, some De Zalze residents say they hope all the unanswered questions they've had for more than two years will be answered as the trial progresses.
