Cape Town - The trial of Johannes Christian de Jager, accused of killing and dismembering teenager Charmaine Mare, and murdering prostitute Hiltina Alexander, will continue in the Western Cape High Court in Cape Town on Tuesday.

On Monday, De Jager told the court that Mare had nearly always stayed in her bedroom when she moved to him and his girlfriend Carol's Kraaifonetein home in Cape Town last year in January.

De Jager has pleaded not guilty to killing the Mpumalanga resident. He has also denied raping and killing prostitute Alexander, aged 18, in Cape Town in May 2008.

The court heard that Mare had missed a job interview he had organised and he had shaken her ankle.

The day before the interview, De Jager claimed Mare had been wearing transparent pants and no panties when he called her to fetch a cooldrink at night.

Prosecutor Romay van Rooyen asked De Jager what he thought of Mare's choice of clothing.

"I just looked. That's all. I did not say anything," he replied.

"But it was something that stood out for you?" Van Rooyen said.

"...You could see it. A man is not blind," he replied.
