    Yep, I agree. However Masipa didn't find it was premeditated so it will be 15 years. As a first offender he may only have to serve half and time served will be deducted.

    He made some bad enemies before he murdered Reeva and I'd be a bit nervous being out and about on the streets if I were in his shoes. I believe in karma.

    Not one tweet, I'm checking news sites, nothing yet. I have no idea what's happening.

    JJ, does it usually start late, like HvB's trial?

    Sorry Prime, I don't remember and the the times have gone from the tweets. I've been checking to see if it started too. But it is SA after all.

    It really is tiresome. Our courts start on time, to the minute.

    According to Susan’s sister, she sustained a large bruise on her right leg when she fell onto a dumbbell after attempting a handstand.

    This new information cast doubt on state pathologist Dr Akmal Khan’s post-mortem analysis that Susan suffered from “battered woman syndrome”. He testified that Susan had several bruises and injuries on her body‚ which indicated a history of abuse.

    However‚ a statement by Susan’s mother‚ presented to Khan by state prosecutor Louis Van Niekerk‚ indicated that both she and her daughter had “very thin skin” and bruised easily.

    Rohde’s defence team‚ in court documents‚ indicated that some of her injuries were the result of an altercation between the couple and a gym injury.

    Van Niekerk also read out a statement made by her sister‚ Angela Norton‚ which said that Susan told her about the bruise on her upper right thigh – and that it was the result of her having fallen on a dumbbell days before she was murdered‚ and that Susan was known to do handstands. These have led Khan to entertain the idea that she may not have been abused after all. But Khan has insisted that the cause of death was manual strangulation.

    “If he accidentally hit her on her eye socket with his elbow‚ it could explain the bruising on her left eye‚ and the bruising on her wrist could be from her falling down as explained‚ but the bruising on the knuckles are a bit odd – that would indicate that she fought back against him.

    “There are also bruises on her lower legs – did he kick her? This also wouldn’t explain the haemorrhaging to her neck‚ and the broken thyroid cartilage – did he grab her neck during the altercation?

    “This does not explain the cause of death by manual strangulation. It does not explain abrasions on her neck from the fingernail scratch marks‚” said Khan‚ adding that he would need more detail about the alleged confrontation to make a conclusion.

    Khan criticised Dr Reggie Perumal’s findings of a second post-mortem‚ saying that Perumal left out crucial findings in his report – such as large amounts of blood found in Susan’s intestines and the haemorrhaging of neck and a broken thyroid cartilage – consistent with strangulation.

    “These are important findings‚ because they are not found in a hanging suicide case‚” said Khan. “I would be concerned as to the impartiality of this report in the context of providing expert testimony to this court.”

    VD Spuy asks to see all the notes for Khan's last 10 trials. Khan hesitant, some cases still running, has to redact names

    VD Spuy insisting on seeing all of Khan's notes. Khan says notes are kept elsewhere, in this case Paarl . VDS produces copies

    Khan looks through the stored mortuary notes VDS produced, finds only some of his, can't explain why not all there

    VDS wants to know how Khan managed to write notes + do post mortem while gloved up. Khan says wrote, dabbed hands on towel, wrote.

    Susan Rohde's urine tested for 5 drugs: benzodiazepine, tricyclic anti-depressants, opioids, meth, dagga. All neg. 0.05 alcohol

    Jason Rohde looks so small, dwarfed by huge wooden dock, mock bathroom door next to him against wall

    Approach of Graham VD Spuy in Rohde defence seems friendly and slightly shambolic, but he has a sharp bite.
