2010-09-09 00:00

HILTON murder accused Gerald Rosselloty (37) appeared fleetingly in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court yesterday when his case was transferred to the regional court ahead of a date being set for his trial in the high court.

The director of public prosecutions has indicated that Rosselloty will stand trial on charges of murder, arson and rape in the high court. The trial is expected to be heard around March next year.

Rosselloty is charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Nokwazi Mkhize, whose burned remains were discovered on April 17 in the veld a short distance from the townhouse where Rosselloty lived in Hilton.

He is charged with arson arising from a fire that partly destroyed the townhouse the same night, as well as a third charge of rape of a six-year-old girl, which he allegedly committed in September 2006.

Rosselloty is in custody.
