Cape Town - The so-called "Modimolle Monster" Johan Kotzé and all co-accused have been found guilty of kidnapping and the gang rape of Ina Bonette in the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Monday.

Kotzé and co-accused Andries Sithole were found guilty of the murder of Bonnette's son, Conrad.

Kotzé, Andries Sithole, Pieta Mohlake, and Sello Mphaka were on trial for murdering Kotzé's stepson Conrad Bonnette, 19, as well as kidnapping, repeatedly raping, and attempting to murder Kotzé's former wife Ina Bonnette in his Modimolle, Limpopo, home on 3 January 2012.

Kotzé denied guilt, claiming he could not be held accountable for his actions that day.

A defence psychologist testified that Kotzé had a narcissistic personality disorder and suffered from an acute stress disorder and major depression, which resulted in a state of dissociation during the incident.

A State psychologist, however, testified that Kotzé did not suffer from any mental disorders and could be held accountable for his actions.

Sithole, Mohlake, and Mphaka claimed Kotzé threatened to shoot them if they did not co-operate. They insisted they merely pretended to rape Bonnette because they could not get erections.

Bonnette testified the three men looked on while Kotzé sexually tortured her and mutilated her breasts before they took turns to rape her.

She was still tied to a bed with tape over her mouth when she heard her son repeatedly say "Please uncle, don't shoot", followed by three shots. He died at the scene after being shot in the face, chest, and knee.
