    2014-03-10 16:03
    Cape Town - The four men accused of beating former Royal Marine, Brett Williams, to death outside Kings Park rugby stadium have all pleaded not guilty.

    Twenty-nine-year-old UK rugby fan Williams died outside the stadium following a Super Rugby match between the Sharks and Melbourne Rebels last year.

    According to the East Coast Radio website, brothers Blayne and Kyle Shepard, Andries van der Merwe and Dustin van Wyk all went on trial in the Durban Regional Court on Monday.

    All four pleaded not guilty, and when proceedings began, their lawyers asked for the court to be adjourned for a site inspection at Kings Park.
    Magistrate Trevor Levitt granted the application.

    Williams' fiancé, Louise Scott, flew in from the UK to attend proceedings. She was accompanied by Williams' close friend, Josh Mills.
