Johannesburg - The trial of two siblings accused of killing their parents continues in the Durban High Court on Thursday.
Nicolette Lotter, 29, her brother Hardus, 23, and Matthew Naidoo, 25, stand accused of murdering the siblings' parents Maria Magdalena “Rickie” Lotter, 52, and Johannes Petrus “Johnny” Lotter, 53, in July 2008.
The Lotters claim that Naidoo, Nicolette's former boyfriend, masterminded the murders and justified them by saying they were the will of God.
He also allegedly claimed to be the “third son of God”.
On Wednesday, Nicolette testified that Naidoo used witchcraft to compel her and her brother to kill their parents.
She also felt “indebted” to him because he had helped her spiritually, she said. - Sapa
