Johannesburg - Soccer player Bryce Moon failed in a court attempt on Friday to have a murder charge against him withdrawn.

"There is reasonable evidence to convict," said magistrate Vincent Pienaar in the Randburg Magistrate's Court.

However, the court withdrew a charge of driving while over the legal alcohol limit because of a technicality.

Moon would still face a charge of drunken driving.

He had made an application to have all the charges against him withdrawn.

He faced charges of, among others, murder, attempted murder, drunken driving and reckless driving.

Advocate Naren Sangham argued that the State witnesses had been unreliable as they had contradicted one another on numerous occasions.

State Prosecutor Rodger Mareume opposed the application and said that there was enough prima facie evidence against Moon.

Moon allegedly hit and killed domestic worker Mavis Ncube while driving at high speed in Sandhurst in 2009.
