The finding of an inquest into the death of former crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli's love rival, Oupa Ramogibe, is expected to be given on November 2 in the Boksburg Magistrate's Court.
Ramogibe died in February 1999 and the inquest was instituted to determine if foul play was a part in his death.
The Ramogibe family accused Mdluli of killing him after he married Mdluli's ex-lover, Tsidi Buthelezi.
Mdluli claimed there was a plot to implicate him and that the Ramogibe family was working with the police.
"I've accepted that there is a plot against me - there is nothing else I can think of. As for who - I don't know," he testified on September 19.
Mdluli was accused of the murder along with Samuel Dlomo, Colonel Nkosana Sebastian Ximba, and Lt-Col Mtunzi-Omhle Mthembeni Mtunzi, but the charge was provisionally withdrawn in February pending the outcome of the inquest.
Also withdrawn were charges of intimidation, kidnapping, assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, attempted murder, and conspiracy to commit murder.
Mdluli admitted that he was hurt, ashamed and felt useless when he learned about Buthelezi and Ramogibe's relationship.
A number of people were called to testify in the inquest that started on September 3, including Ramogibe's relatives, and Dlomo and Mdluli's former colleagues.
The State also read into record a number of statements.
Ramogibe was shot dead when he went with Dlomo to a location where he had previously been shot at.
