    Wow the five accused killed the KZN couple in court. This case will be an open and shut affair, what with the killing taking place right there.

    I personally 've lost faith with our judiciary. The next move 'll be bail and then the next is case dismissed due to lack of evidence. I've witnessed several cases of this nature following the same pattern. Can we see a difference on this particular one.
