Port Elizabeth - Judge Dayalin Chetty on Monday found that secret video recording of Christopher Panayiotou, allegedly involved in his wife Jayde's April 2015 murder, should be allowed as evidence, Netwerk24 reported.

Advocate Terry Price, Panayiotou's attorney, closed the defence's case in a trial-within-a-trial on May 5.

The defence ended its case with the evidence of Siyanda Nongogo, the younger brother of Luthando Siyoni, the alleged middleman and hostile section 204 witness.

Panayiotou and Siyoni, as well as Zolani Sibeko and Sinethemba Nemembe, are charged with the murder.

Panayiotou is allegedly the mastermind behind it.

The State has a tape recording of a conversation between Panayiotou and Siyoni, in which Panayiotou apparently implicates himself.

A trial-within-a-trial was held to determine whether this tape recording should be allowed as evidence in court.

The trial continues.
