THE much-anticipated judgment on whether or not a young man accused of killing three people in a car accident, including a City police officer on duty, is guilty has been postponed to January next year.
Morne Mouton, 23, who was a teenager when the alleged reckless driving occurred in 2015, is facing three charges of culpable homicide.
The state is alleging that Mouton was highly intoxicated at the time of the accident.
He reportedly ran the deceased persons over as they were standing on the sidewalk along Sam Nujoma Drive in Hochland Park.
Records indicate that he was speeding and that two other people escaped unharmed.
He has pleaded not guilty to the charges as he claims that he was not intoxicated at the time of the accident.
The deceased persons are City Police officer Manfred Gaoseb and two civilians, Werner Simon and Joshua Ngenokesho.
Mouton is currently out on bail that was set for N$6,000.
Magistrate Stanley Vanessa will on 22 January 2021 decide his fate when she delivers her judgement.
The judgment was initially set down for today but could not proceed as the presiding officer was not ready.
Mouton is represented by Ndeli Ndaitwah of the Sisa Namandje law firm, while Rowan van Wyk is representing the state.
