Port Elizabeth - The trial of Christopher Panayiotou and his co-accused for the murder of his wife Jayde is expected to continue in the Eastern Cape High Court in Port Elizabeth on Monday.

On Friday, a trial within a trial was held to determine the admissibility as evidence of a recorded conversation between Panayiotou and his alleged middleman Luthando Siyoni.

The conversation was recorded during a sting operation by a police task team shortly after Siyoni, who worked for Panayiotou, was arrested.

Panayiotou, Sinethemba Nenembe and Zolani Sibeko are on trial on charges of conspiring, kidnapping, robbing, and killing Jayde on April 21, 2015. They pleaded not guilty. The alleged hitman, Sizwezakhe Vumazonke, died in September.

Jayde Panayiotou, 29, was abducted outside her home in Kabega Park, Port Elizabeth, while waiting for her lift to Riebeeck Park High School on Tuesday, April 21. She was found shot dead in a veld outside KwaNobuhle township, Uitenhage, the following day.
