Johannesburg - The murder trial of a 16-year-old boy accused of killing a Griquatown family was scheduled to continue in the Northern Cape High Court on Tuesday.
The youth is accused of murdering Deon Steenkamp, 44, his wife Christelle, 43, and daughter Marthella, 14.
On Monday, the boy pleaded not guilty to all three murder charges.
He also pleaded not guilty to a charge of rape and another of defeating the ends of justice.
Also on Monday, the court was shown images of the victims for the first time.
One photo showed a man lying on his stomach, wearing a blue shirt with the words “South Africa” on the back. There was a blood smear on the floor next to him.
Another photo showed a woman in a neon green top and blue shorts lying on her side. It was not clear whether it was the mother or her daughter.
Magazines were also seen scattered across the floor beside a small coffee table.
The images were shown as part of crime scene expert Colonel Sietze Alberts' testimony. - Sapa
