Johannesburg - The bail application of nine police officers accused of killing Daveyton taxi driver Mido Macia is expected to continue in the Benoni Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
The officers face charges of murder for allegedly handcuffing Macia to the back of a police van and dragging him along the street in Daveyton last month.
On Monday, prosecutor December Mthimunye said an autopsy found Macia had extensive internal and external injuries, and had died as a result of hypoxia.
The autopsy revealed Macia had extensive haemorrhaging in his right lung and in the tissue surrounding his heart.
Macia was found dead in the local police station's holding cells several hours later.
The State claims it has a “watertight case” against the officers.
Magistrate Sam Makamu said proceedings would resume at 8.30am on Tuesday. - Sapa
