According to new revelations in court by the victim's father, Tshepo Mokoena, Mantsoe did not kill his daughter by mistake as his family was seen on CCTV cleaning the apartment where he murdered her and leaving with the clothes.
Mokoena also confirmed that Mantsoe pointed out the scene where he allegedly dumped Karabo after he was arrested.
Before the brief trial was postponed to the May 24 for a formal bail application, Mantsoe was warned that he faces life in prison should he be convicted of the brutal murder while he will remain in custody pending hearing on his bail application.
Police said they discovered the body of the burnt Karabo in Lyndhurst and further investigations led to the arrest of Mantsoe.
