Kimberley - The triple murder trial of a 17-year-old boy resumed in the Northern Cape High Court on Monday.

Northern Cape Judge President Frans Kgomo was hearing evidence in relation to the murders of Northern Cape farmer Deon Steenkamp, 44, his wife Christelle, 43, and daughter Marthella, 14.

The State indicated that the defence team would start proceedings with some recognition in the matter.

The boy’s counsel Willem Coetzee started to read a long list of recognitions in the investigation process.

This included the identity of the victims, laboratory tests done, and undisputed as well as evidence that was collected and treated correctly.

The cross-examination of case investigator Dick de Waal was also expected to continue as he was the last witness to testify in the case.

He is still under oath. The case continues.
