Last year on the John Robbie show, a story emerged of a woman, whose former boyfriend poured acid over her after their relationship deteriorated.
Jan Pieterse is accused of attempted murder after leaving Ines Antonio with third degree burns on her face and body.
Thando Khubeka reported on John's show this morning that the trial is currently underway. Khubeka explains that it emerged in court that the accused went to visit her (after she broke up with him) saying that he had a present for their child. When she reached out, he poured battery acid over her.
Ines told the Johannesburg Regional Court that he sent her death threats while she was recovering in hospital.
Meanwhile, the accused as pleaded not guilty and says they had an argument and he reached for the battery acid in self-defense.
