Henri van Breda has been found guilty by the Western Cape High Court in the murder trial of his parents and brother. Watch live from News24's studio in Cape Town as we unpack the trial and look ahead to Van Breda's sentencing.

Van Breda, 23, pleaded not guilty to axing his parents and brother to death, seriously injuring his sister Marli, and defeating the ends of justice.

Judge Siraj Desai found him guilty on all counts.

In handing out his judgment, Desai said, "The result is inescapable."

He also said that Van Breda, who was "unimpressive as a witness" must have known what he was doing.

Legal expert William Booth, News24 reporter Tammy Petersen and News24 opinions editor Alet Janse Van Rensburg shed light on the case, ruling and Van Breda's potential sentence.
