Facebook rapist Thabo Bester goes on trial for murder in the Cape Town High Court on Thursday.

Bester is accused of killing 26-year-old model Nomfundu Tyulu in Milnerton in September. She was found stabbed in the chest, in a room in a bed-and-breakfast.

He was dubbed the "Facebook rapist" for using the social networking site to lure women by claiming he could launch their modelling careers.

He then raped and robbed them at knife-point.

In October, he was sentenced to 50 years' imprisonment by a Durban court for raping and robbing two models.
