Port Elizabeth - Murder accused Christopher Panayiotou's third bail application is expected to continue in the Port Elizabeth Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.

He was arrested in April last year for allegedly masterminding the murder of his wife Jayde.

Magistrate Abigail Beeton originally denied Panayiotou bail following an application between May and June 2015.

Panayiotou’s lawyers then took the matter to the High Court in Grahamstown. The application was dismissed.

In November last year, Panayiotou filed a new application for bail, but later withdrew the motion because his lawyers still did not have the docket.

He would now argue that he should get bail because he had new evidence.
