Murder-accused Henri van Breda has told the Western Cape High that one of the intruders who has attacked his family on the night of their death had laughed as he attacked his father.
One of the intruders who attacked and killed the Van Breda family laughed as he went for the father, murder-accused Henri van Breda told the Western Cape High Court on Monday.
From what he could see, his father, Martin, tried to tackle the assailant, Van Breda said in his plea explanation which was read out in court.
On property was a black gate, with a key in it. Intruders would have left through there. The gate was closed.
Kleynhans says there were no scuff marks indicating someone may have jumped house's wall.
Didn't fit in with my experience of crime scene. There was a laptop on the table, plugged into wall, a handbag on the table.
TV was still there.
Usually a burglary would see whole house deurmekaar.
The man was nervous, no crying. He was emotional, followed my instructions.
That person was Henri van Breda.
