Man allegedly shoots and kills his wife in their Sunninghill home

A 67-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly murdered his wife following an argument in their Sunninghill home on 9 July.  The victim, a 43-year old woman, was arguing with her husband when he went to the bedroom and fetched his 9mm firearm.

Constable David Mothapo, the spokesperson for Sandton Police Station, said, “The suspect went back to the kitchen where he allegedly shot and killed his wife. The suspect then called his son who rushed to the house where he found his dad outside. His stepmom was lying on her stomach in the kitchen.”

Mothapo added that two children aged six and 12 were in the house but ran outside at the time of the argument. “All role players attended the scene and the suspect was arrested. He was taken to Sandton Police Station for detention where a case is being registered.”
