Johannesburg - The trial of four men accused of killing former Royal Marine Brett Williams is expected to continue in the Durban Regional Court on Thursday.

On Wednesday, witness Cameron Hamilton said the fight that killed Williams was over within seconds.

"I heard a commotion behind me. I turned around and it was all over. I saw the deceased lying on the floor. He was lying on his back," Hamilton said at the time.

Hamilton was giving evidence in the trial of Blayne Shepard, aged 23, his brother Kyle, aged 25, Andries van der Merwe, aged 23, and Dustin van Wyk, aged 23, who each face a charge of murder, three of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, and one of crimen injuria.

They are accused of beating Williams to death outside Kings Park stadium on the night of 23 March last year, after a rugby match.

Hamilton told the court he did not see the fight.
