D-day for convicted murderer Cameron Wilson
Wilson committed five murders, as well as several attempted murders and rapes in Philippi and Valhalla Park.
CAPE TOWN - Convicted killer Cameron Wilson will be sentenced in the Western Cape High Court on Thursday.
Wilson committed five murders, as well as several attempted murders and rapes in Philippi and Valhalla Park between 2014 and 2016.
He was arrested in September for stabbing to death 18-year-old Lekita Moore.
The defence has called on the court to consider Wilson's poor socio-economic background and the negative influence his gangster father had on his life.
Lawyer Mohamed Sibda also says there's no proof that most of the crimes he committed were premeditated.
Sibda argues even though a psychiatrist has found the 20-year-old has psychopathic tendencies, it doesn't mean there's no chance of rehabilitation.
He's called on the court not to allow public opinion to deter it from imposing the correct sentence, even if it doesn't meet general public approval.
The State has labelled Wilson’s crimes heinous.
Prosecutor Carine Teunissen has called on the court to punish him accordingly.
