Palm Ridge, Vereeniging - The alleged “Sunday rapist” cried on Wednesday as he testified about his affairs with prostitutes.
“My marriage bed was special to me up to a point, after that not so much,” Johannes Jacobus Steyn told the High Court, sitting in the Palm Ridge Magistrate's Court in Alberton.
Steyn was being cross-examined on sexual relations he said he had with a prostitute at his house on October 12, 2011, the day teenager Louise de Waal was kidnapped and murdered
Steyn has pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder, 11 of rape, 10 of sexual assault, 10 of kidnapping, one of attempted sexual assault, and one of attempted kidnapping.
Prosecutor Carina Coetzee asked why when he took other prostitutes to his house they only had sex in the living room, but on that day they also went to his bedroom.
Steyn started crying as he explained that his marriage had deteriorated since 2011. He removed his wedding picture and the Bibles next to the bed. He said he still felt too guilty to have sex on his bed and they decided to leave.
This was when he took the prostitute to an abandoned holiday resort in Maropeng, the same area where De Waal's burned body was found, Steyn testified. - Sapa
