He doesn't have a leg to stand on! Guilty!

He fired blindly through a bathroom door at a noise he heard. Even if he did not mean to kill her, he is guilty for being a massive coward and an irresponsible jerk.

If he's found innocent, he's going to join the S. African Police Department

Even if it was an armed and dangerous intruder, he had him/her cornered in the crapper, there was no excuse to behave the way he did; but when he takes the view of shooting first asking questions later. he should swing, whoever got killed.

So far, about what I thought (and, it seems, echoing the general consensus in S.A.)

Huh. No jury. The way the charges are laid in South African law, my guess is guilty on some of the firearms charges, probably guilty on one of the homicide charges, not guilty on the premeditated murder. Lots of grounds for appeal and a re-trial.
