Did a heartbroken Susan Rohde end her own life in the bathroom of a fancy winelands hotel in July 2016 or did her husband Jason violently cut her life short and try to lead police off the trail? Closing arguments for and against these scenarios will be presented in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday. Watch live.
During closing arguments on Tuesday, prosecutor Louis van Niekerk told the Western Cape High Court that it should be cautious in accepting Jason’s version of how he found his wife’s body in a hotel room in 2016, over the version of hotel maintenance worker Desmond Daniels.
Jason’s lawyer Graham van der Spuy will submit his closing argument on Wednesday.
