Bryce Moon murder trial continues

Johannesburg - The trial of Supersport United defender Bryce Moon continues in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

He faces charges of murder and drunken driving relating to a car accident in 2009.

He allegedly drove over Mavis Ncube in his Mercedes-Benz when he failed to negotiate a bend in Sandhurst.

Ncube later died in hospital from head injuries.

On Tuesday, advocate Naren Sangham, for Moon, said Ncube's employer Greg Turner had brought photographs of the scene only after charges against Moon were withdrawn in April 2010.

"You went about trying to resurrect the investigations," said Sanghum.

"When the charges were withdrawn from the accused, it was because there was no evidence against him until a systematic accumulation of evidence by yourself... and pursuing he be charged," he said.

Turner told the court he took photographs of the scene shortly after the accident.

He said when Johannesburg metro police officer Mphumuzi Tom arrived at the scene, he did not have a camera to take pictures.

Turner said he had used his cameraphone to take the pictures.

Tom testified that Moon smelled of alcohol when he was in hospital shortly after the accident.

The former Bafana Bafana defender played for Greek giants Panathinaikos before he returned to South Africa to play for SuperSport United.

    What has happened to the human conscience? One does something wrong and knows it but denies any wrongdoing..goes to court... wastes court time... wastes taxpayers'...delays closure on the part of the victim's family all because of a big ego and dancing to greedy lawyers' tune. Bryce people like you make me sick.

      true. he probably think a confession and sentence will land him in jail for at least 25yers. he's taking his chances in court. granted its not morally correct. but it does leave us with a bitter taste. trust me he doesnt sleep well from the guilt. its a real shame. such a talent
