Johannesburg - The trial of the man accused of killing Top Billing presenter Simba Mhere and his friend Kady-Shay O'Bryan in a road crash was postponed in the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Preshalin Naidoo's lawyer Francois Roets asked for a postponement for the defence to consult with experts to prepare for the cross-examination of a witness.

This after a witness, Lorenz Stoger, from CarTrack, testified on Monday morning.

Naidoo sat silently in the dock during his appearance.

He faces two counts of culpable homicide and additional charges of reckless or negligent driving and inconsiderate driving.

His VW Polo GTI crashed into Mhere's car on William Nicol Drive, Fourways, in the early hours of January 31, 2015.

Mhere's father Joseph was a passenger in the car. He survived.

The matter was postponed to February 7, 8, and 9 2017.
