Johannesburg - The murder trial of acting judge Patrick Maqubela's widow and her business partner is expected to continue in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.

Thandi Maqubela and her co-accused Vela Mabena have pleaded not guilty to a charge of murdering the judge in his Cape Town flat in June 2009.

Maqubela faces additional charges of fraud and forgery.

Prosecutors Bonnie Currie-Gamwo and Pedro van Wyk allege she forged her husband's will and fraudulently lodged it at the office of the Master of the High Court in Johannesburg.

The Master of the High Court is a division of the justice department that deals with deceased estates.

Sipho Mfolozi, a pathologist, is expected to take to the stand when the trial resumes.

The court has also called for pathologist Gert Saaiman - who is the dean of pathology at the University of Pretoria - to be present during Mfolozi's testimony.

Saaiman is expected to take the stand at a later date.
