The case of two people accused of killing a man and leaving his body in the boot of a car at Montecasino, Johannesburg are expected to appear in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday.

Jean-Pierre Malan and his girlfriend Maruschka Robinson, a former stripper, face murder charges after Dustan Blom’s decomposing body was found in the boot of his own car in the parking garage at the entertainment venue in September.

He was found after security guards noticed a bad smell coming from the car.

Robinson was arrested on September 24, and Malan on September 26.

At their previous court appearance, Malan’s lawyer Shaun Hamilton said his client would provide blood and handwriting samples.
