Bredasdorp - Jonathan Davids pleaded not guilty to raping and killing teenager Anene Booysen, in the Bredasdorp Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old, who was dressed in a grey, hooded top and jeans, gave his version of events the night Booysen, 17, was killed.

Booysen was gang raped and disembowelled after visiting a club on Friday, 1 February.

She was found at the Asla Magwebu construction site, where she worked, not far from her RDP home, the next morning.

She managed to identify one of her killers before she died in hospital that night.

Davids was testifying in his bail application. His co-accused, Johannes Kana, 21, is expected to apply for bail at a later stage.

Davids said he was at the same pub as Anene on the night in question. He greeted her around 22:00 and stayed until midnight, when he left with two male friends and two female friends.

They bought a box of wine at a different venue, took it home with them, drank it and went to sleep.

The court heard that he had lived in the town his whole life and had no wife, girlfriend or children.

His mother died in 2003 and he did not know his father. He had no fixed address and earned about R1 500 a month selling flowers.
