BREDASDORP - The suspect accused of the murder of Bredasdorp teen, Anene Booysen, goes on trial on Monday. 

Johannes Kana pleaded not guilty at an earlier hearing to the brutal attack that killed Booysen.

He has been kept in custody for the past eight months.

The sheer brutality of the attack on 17-year-old Anene Booysen shocked the world.

Booysen was on her way home from a nearby pub when she was accosted, raped and disembowelled.

She lived long enough to name one of her suspected attackers, Jonathan Davids.

However, investigators failed to secure enough forensic evidence against him.

Davids was let off the hook, shortly before a trial date was set.

He believes Booysen named him because she had seen him at the pub and possibly thought he could help nab her attackers.

Now, Johannes Kana is the last suspect standing.

He will appear in the Swellendam Circuit Court on Monday, where his trial is scheduled to start.

The proceedings are expected to draw fresh attention to the attack, as the details of her last moments are revealed.
