According to police spokesperson, Col Moatshe Ngoepe, the man was later found lying dead in a pool of blood with gun shot wounds and the firearm lying next to his body.

Ngoepe says in the early hours of this morning, 15 August, the man arrived at his home in the Roerfontein Village, Khudugane section, with his girlfriend.

An argument ensued and the man tied both his girlfriend and his wife up before shooting and killing his girlfriend and assaulting his wife with a sharp object.

The man’s wife survived with multiple injuries throughout her body.

“The motive behind this incident is still unknown at this stage but domestic violence may not be ruled out. Cases of murder and inquest were opened and police investigations continue,” he said.
