A former stripper and her partner, accused of killing Dunstan Blom and leaving his body in the boot of his car at Montecasino in September 2013, pleaded not guilty to murder and aggravating robbery in the Johannesburg high court on Wednesday.

Muruschka Robinson Robinson pleaded guilty to five counts of fraud and to being present when the body was taken and dropped off at Monte Casino.

Her partner, Jean Pierre Malan, pleaded guilty to nine counts of fraud, attempting to defeat the ends of justice as well as being in possession of identity documents that didn’t belong to him.

The pair admitted to using Blom’s cards and purchasing goods worth close to R10,000 and withdrawing R27,500 from his account.

The case would resume on Thursday.
