Murder accused Sandile Mantsoe is expected to learn his fate in the Johannesburg High Court later this week.
Mantsoe is accused of killing his 22-year-old girlfriend Karabo Mokoena, setting her body alight and dumping it in a veld in Lyndhurst last year.
The defence was expected to call witnesses including Mantsoe to testify on Monday morning, but the accused did not take the stand.
Judge Pieter Johnson has postponed the matter to Wednesday when he will hand down judgment.
Eyewitness News reporter Kgomotso Modise has more on the story.
