Experts and lawyers going long with opinions on ‘self-inflicted’ vs ‘vicious murder’

Surely a circus is in town (South Africa) at this trial with lawyers and esteemed professors of slashes and cuts and lawyers acting as substitute experts at a multiple murder trial. It appears that all in the family had defensive hand wounds except the surviving son Henri van Breda. The experts use ‘maybe’ in determining their certainty. That surely gives the jury alot of wiggle room in making final ‘black’ or ‘white’ decisions on guilt.

Pathology Prof says no way…

The defense goes all out in demonstrating alternatives to jurors. 

Over view of the 17 day trial.
