A man who allegedly shot and killed another man in Palmerston last year looked like a demon from a horror movie, a Darwin court has heard.
Janez Kostanjevec has been charged with the murder of 25-year-old Raymond Dargie.
Mr Dargie was shot in the chest with a rifle, in the kitchen of a share house in Palmerston last July.
Today, a committal hearing heard five out of the 11 witnesses to be called by the prosecution.
All of the witnesses today were in the share house when the shooting took place.
One of the witnesses described how the two men were having a brawl in the laundry before Mr Kostanjevec picked up a gun and shot Mr Dargie.
Another witness told the court Mr Kostanjevec "looked like a demon from a horror movie" before he allegedly shot the victim.
The hearing continues.
