Johannesburg - Convicted killer DJ Donald Sebolai has not shown any real remorse for murdering his girlfriend, Dolly Tshabalala, the High Court sitting in Palm Ridge heard on Thursday.

"It feels like he is blaming the deceased for his crime and I don't think that there is real heartfelt [emotion] towards the deceased... shown by the accused," prosecutor Elize le Roux told the court.

She said Sebolai's mopping up of the scene while the "life seeped out" of his girlfriend was not human nature, but instead the action of a cold-blooded killer.

Le Roux said evidence presented by the State clearly showed his violent nature.

Sebolai had earlier testified that he saw nothing wrong with hitting a partner with an open hand in order to put her back in line.

For the third time in a row, Sebolai appeared in court dressed in the same cream and brown shirt.

He lowered his head when he heard about emotional letters written by Tshabalala's daughter, in which she described how she missed her mother.

The matter was postponed to March 4 for sentencing.
