Cape Town – Western Cape High Court, Susan Rohde & # 39; s eye examining the state pathologist "completely disappointed itself," he said.

Her husband, Jason Rohde, is on trial for the murder, but his defense claims that Susan committed suicide.

There were allegations of closing in court on Wednesday.

Rohan's lawyer, Graham Van Der Spuy, said that Susan caused her own death and that Jason was backed up by evidence of all the versions, evidence of DNA, fingerprints, phone records and blood spatter.

"The first person who had examined him at the scene was Dr. Akmal Coetzee-Khan, a State pathologist who had never mentioned a formal dress," Van Der Spuy said. Said.

"The sinister fool suddenly flies through the window," he said.

"Dr Coetzee-Khan, with some fundamental ways, with serious ignorance, even with the most basic forensic principles, does not say the truth and has performed the scene on the spot and inadequately in the autopsy," Van Der Spuy said.

Jason Rohde is accused of murdering his wife Susan while attending a job function in her hotel room on July 7, 2016 in Stellenbosch.

Susan's body was found hanging by a hair dryer rope attached to the bathroom door.

Jason insists he didn't kill his wife.
