The witness, Diep River resident Keenan Thomas, placed murder accused Rob Packham, the Constantia businessman, close to the scene where his wife had been found dead.
The incident happened on the night of 22 February 2018. The police found Gill Packham’s body in the boot of her burnt-out BMW at Diep River train station. Rob Packham, her ex-husband, is a prime suspect in this case.
Another witness told the court he saw Rob Packham driving the deceased woman’s vehicle on the day she disappeared, but the man refused the accusations.
The murder trial will resume on Monday.
