Cape Town - A couple had sex on a bed under which a dead body had been stuffed, a Cape Town court heard.

This emerged in the Cape Town Regional Court where Siyabonga Gelese, 23, was found guilty of murdering a woman and shoving her body under his bed, reported the Cape Argus.

Gelese apparently became enraged when Desiree Davids, 26, told him that she was HIV positive and he then stabbed her 17 times.

They had had sex the previous night and she had apparently told him not to use a condom.

Galese was sentenced to 18 years in jail for the murder as well as an additional 10 years for raping a pregnant woman.

The court heard that after murdering Davids, Gelese went clubbing and came back to his flat with friends and that one couple had sex on the bed under which Davids’s body was lying.

Gelese then raped a pregnant woman while her boyfriend was asleep next to her.

The court heard that Gelese had lost both parents to Aids when he was very young and on hearing that Davids was HIV positive he had been provoked into an uncontrollable rage.
