Johannesburg - A man jailed for killing a teenage girl in an apparent satanic ritual testified in the South Gauteng High Court at the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court on Thursday.

Jeremy King, 20, was giving evidence against four other youths accused of participating in the ritual.

For most of Thursday, King told the court his version of events leading up to the incident.

As cross-examination began, the matter was adjourned until Friday.

Kirsty Theologo, 18, and her friend were tied up, doused with petrol and set alight on a hill in southern Johannesburg on 21 October 2011.

Theologo later died in hospital, but her friend survived.

King and Lester Moody admitted to the crime and were both sentenced to 17 years in jail, five of which were suspended.
