Johannesburg - The degree of violence that was used in the killing of former Jozi FM DJ Donald Sebolai's girlfriend was not so serious to suggest Sebolai was a violent man, the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge heard on Thursday.

"When we look at the degree of violence used, there were no bruises and signs of struggle," Thabang Mathopo, for Sebolai, told the court.

Judge Cassim Moosa pointed out it was possible for there to be a struggle and no bruises to be left behind.

Moosa also earlier clarified that while some media had reported that Sebolai had stabbed his girlfriend several times, she was only stabbed once.

She died in a pool of blood in Sebolai's home after suffering the single stab wound to the pelvic area.

Sebolai has been found guilty of her murder. He has, however, maintained that she stabbed herself as they wrestled for a knife which she had used to stab him in the fingers.
