Johannesburg - The Protea Magistrate's Court began delivering its verdict in the murder trial of Molemo "Jub Jub" Maarohanye and Themba Tshabalala on Wednesday.

The courtroom started filling up as proceedings got underway.

Maarohanye and Tshabalala entered the dock both wearing black suits.

The two were allegedly drag-racing in Protea North in March 2010 when they crashed into a group of schoolchildren. Four boys were killed and two were seriously injured.

They are charged with murder, reckless driving, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and failing to assess the injuries of the victims. Both accused pleaded not guilty to all the charges.

Magistrate Brian Nemavhidi began reading his judgment and recalled what the court had heard during the trial.

Friends and family of the school children and of Tshabalala and Maarohanye were present.
Police officers were at the entrance of the packed public gallery to ensure order and silence.
