Defence claims Cameron Wilson's blood spatter proves he didn't kill Lekita Moore

The defence in the Cameron Wilson trial has argued that blood spatter evidence shows the multiple murder accused could not of killed 18-year-old Lekita Moore.

They're saying if he was indeed her attacker, surely there would be more blood on his clothes instead mere splatters of blood found on his coat. There was no blood found on his shoes or jeans.

The 20-year-old was arrested in September last year after Moore's mutilated body was found on a field in Valhalla Park.

He faces three more murder charges, as well as charges of attempted murder and rape.

Wilson's defence says the bloodstains on the accused corroborate his statement that he saw an acquaintance named Xavier Bester stab Moore 98 times.

He also claimed that he wrestled with Bester, which is allegedly how blood splatter landed on his clothes.

Wilson claims to have had consensual sex with Dawney Davids in Heinz Park in April 2015, despite the woman testifying that the accused raped and stabbed her.

He has denied any involvement in all the crimes he's accused of having committed in Philippi and Valhalla Park since 2014.

The defence has highlighted discrepancies in the testimony of witnesses and want Wilson acquitted of all charges.

Closing arguments in the trial against multiple murder accused continued in the Western Cape High Court on Monday, reports EWN's Shamiela Fisher.
