Johannesburg - The family of Dolly Tshabalala will have to wait a few more days before hearing whether her alleged killer, former Jozi FM DJ Donald Sebolai, will be put behind bars.

Family members arrived in the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge on Tuesday dressed in white T-shirts with a picture of Tshabalala printed on them. They left the court in disappointment after Judge Cassim Moosa postponed the judgment against Sebolai to next Monday.

Moosa told the court that he had a meeting with the legal teams in chambers where it was agreed that the verdict would be given next week.

Tshabalala was found dead in Sebolai's Soweto flat in June last year. She bled to death after sustaining a stab wound to the pelvic area.

Sebolai, who has fathered three children with three different women, was arrested after nine days on the run.

The former gospel show host has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

It is alleged that Tshabalala was injured as the pair wrestled over a knife which she had used to stab him. She had accused him of cheating.

The couple had just returned home from a night of drinking when they got into the heated argument which turned deadly.

During the trial the court heard about the couple's relationship, which allegedly also involved threesomes with Tshabalala's best friend.

Sebolai, who used to speak out against women and children abuse on his radio show, told the court that Tshabalala was a jealous lover. He admitted to smacking her around a few times "to get her in line".

Dressed in a grey suit and white shirt, Sebolai left the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court looking jovial. Beside him was a female companion who has been at his side throughout the proceedings.
