The nine-year-old boy went missing from Sydenham on July 17 2018 and was last seen alive with Ebrahim.
His decomposed remains were found in September in Phoenix, less than 100m from Ebrahim’s family home.
The court previously heard that Ebrahim, who worked as a butcher, had slept in a shed on a foam mattress after becoming estranged from his family.
He entered Miguel’s life as an acquaintance of the boy’s mother, Raylene. The two worked at the same butchery. Ebrahim lived with Miguel and his mother at their Sydenham home for two weeks, before mother and lodger had an altercation.
When he was first arrested‚ he was found in possession of Miguel’s original birth certificate and Raylene’s identity document.
He will return to court on January 31 2019, facing charges of murder, kidnapping and theft.
