Wife-murder accused Rob Packham told the High Court in Cape Town on Monday how upset his wife Gill was when he admitted in a counselling session he still had feelings for his mistress.

“Gill was upset about the entire thing. When it was revealed to her, she [Gill] wanted our marriage ended by Christmas," said Packham, who butted heads with the prosecution as the state sought to portray him as a dishonest adulterer.
