EWN reporter Monique Mortlock, said the State argued that it is highly unlikely that the intruders broke into the Van Breda's home and attacked the family during closing arguments in the Western Cape High Court
Henry Van Breda is accused of killing his parents and older brother and attacking his younger sister at their Stellenbosch home in January 2015.
The State has been arguing that if it was the balaclava gang, as the defence argued, then surely they should've stolen something which they didn't.— Monique Mortlock, EWN reporter
Prosecutor Susan Galloway has argued that the fact that none of them tried to hide, runaway or call for help indicates that they knew the assailant.— Monique Mortlock, EWN reporter
Van Breda has been out on bail and has appeared in court with a new look. He shaved off his hair and according to Mortlock he looked very relaxed when he entered court with a smile on his face.
Judgment is expected to be delivered in March 2018.
