A sick serial killer who raped and stabbed his final victim 98 times clapped in court as he was sent to prison for 71 years.
In a vile attack on the families of those Cameron Wilson targeted, on being sentenced, he said loudly, "At least I'm still alive".
He was found guilty in a South African court of 13 charges including five murders, one rape and three attempted murder charges.
Listening to his fate, the 20-year-old appeared unfazed by the crowded gallery as Western Cape High Court Judge Chantel Fortuin read her ruling.
Wearing a navy Nike tracksuit top, Wilson could be seen smiling, giggling and slouching in the dock.
Among the five people he killed were his final victim Lekita Moore, 18, 16-year-old Stacey Lee Mohale, who was raped, stoned and then set alight.
Wilson received four life terms for the murders of Toyher Stober, Stacey Lee Mohale, Lekita Moore and for the rape of Dawney Davids.
He was handed 15 years for the murder of Alfonso van Rooyen, five years for possession of an unlicensed firearm and ammunition, 15 years for the murder of Ernest Erasmus, 10 years for attempted murder and conspiracy to commit a crime, six years for assault with intent to commit grievous bodily harm and 10 years for the murder of Roslyn Lakay.
When these two murders were mentioned, he laughed, and rolled his eyes when he heard the life sentences being called out.
Angry members of his victims' shouted, "You will rot in hell", and "Murderer", from the public gallery.
Among those watching proceedings was the Letika Moore's father Charles, who told IOL Newspaper: "I cry every night for my child. She was my everything. He took my source of energy away. She is never coming back to us.
"He must feel the same way we feel. No one should be able to see him, not even his family. He is a serial killer."
Her cousin, Jolene Daniels, said Wilson should never be re-introduced to society in light of him being eligible for parole in just 25 years.
State prosecutor Advocate Carine Teunissen, told IOL: "He was cruel and the crimes he committed were gruesome.
"He disrespected women and enjoyed manipulating them and when they defied him, he lashed at them."
