Return to death site
Tomorrow, Jason Rohde returns to the hotel bathroom at Spier wine estate in Stellenbosch where his wife, Susan, died in July last year. He says it was suicide; the state says he strangled her. The Johannesburg property mogul’s trial at the High Court in Cape Town will begin with an inspection of the alleged crime scene. Rohde’s expensively assembled defence team says forensic evidence will make or break the case.
