CAPE TOWN - The State and the defence will on Monday make their closing arguments in the trial against multiple murder accused Cameron Wilson in the Western Cape High Court.

Wilson faces numerous charges of rape, attempted murder and murder.

He is believed to have committed the crimes over a period of two years in Philippi and Valhalla Park.

The 20-year-old was arrested in September last year after 18-year-old Lekita's Moore's mutilated body was found on a field in Valhalla Park.

He was out on bail for murder at the time of his arrest.

Wilson has denied any involvement in the crimes that he is being accused of.

In 2014, he allegedly killed three men in Heinz Park during separate incidents between October and December.
Wilson is accused of raping and stabbing Dawney Davids in the same area in April 2015.

The youth also allegedly raped and murdered 16-year-old Stacey Lee Mohale and attempted to kill her friend Abigail Plaaitjies in the same period.

In Valhalla Park in September last year, he allegedly stabbed Moore 98 times.

On the night of Moore’s death, the accused allegedly also assaulted and stabbed two other women in the same area.

Wilson has, however, testified that another youth, who was shot dead shortly after Moore’s body was found, was behind the attacks.
