AS IT HAPPENED: Jason Rohde murder trial

he testimony of the man who tried to resuscitate the wife of Jason Rohde in 2016 cannot be relied upon because he failed to see what was in front of him and his memory had faded, the Western Cape High Court heard on Tuesday.

Rohde's defence lawyer Pete Mihalik also felt little value could be placed on the testimony of the State's first witness, Mark Thompson, because he was not an expert.

Thompson, an operations manager at Lew Geffen Sotheby's International Realty, had earlier testified about performing CPR on Susan Rohde in the bathroom of the couple's hotel room at Spier Wine Farm, on July 24, 2016.

He shared several observations about the state of her body, the cord against the bathroom door and how he found her on the floor.
