Constantia businessman Rob Packham has pleaded not guilty to murdering his wife.
Packham, whose trial got underway in the Western Cape High Court on Monday, faces charges of murder and defeating the ends of justice.
He was arrested after Gill Packham’s body was found in the boot of her burnt-out car at Diep River train station in February last year.

Bernice Moore, a colleague of the deceased, and the youngest Packham daughter, Nicola, were the first two State witnesses called to the stand, reports EWN's Shamiela Fisher.
Nicola revealed to the court that her parents were seeing a marriage counsellor because of her father's infidelity.

The 26-year-old says she moved out of the house and relocated to Johannesburg 10 days before her mother's missing body was found dead.
Meanwhile, Moore worked with Gill at the Springfield Convent School where they were both employed as secretaries.
She recounted the day that Gill Packham went missing and how Mr Packham had exhibited some strange behaviour.
