SAD | Husband Allegedly Stabbed His Wife And Two Children To Death. See Why He Did That

A 64-year-old man is being held under police guard in a Gauteng hospital after reportedly stabbing his wife, two children, and their other daughter to death and wounding them. Her husband is accused of stabbing to death a 29-year-old Soweto mother and two of her children, while her four-year-old daughter is in hospital following the incident.

After the attack in Diepkloof, Soweto, on Thursday evening, a 64-year-old suspect is being held under police surveillance in a Gauteng hospital after reportedly attempting suicide. Mavela Masondo, a police spokesperson, said the man allegedly tried to hang himself after the event before police arrived.

On Thursday evening, police were summoned to a domestic violence complaint in Diepkloof. When police arrived, they discovered a woman and three girls with upper-body stab wounds, Masondo added.

He said the mother and two daughters, ages one and six, were pronounced dead on the site.

Masondo said the third daughter, who was four years old, was rushed to the hospital for medical treatment. The suspect is the victim's husband and the father of the children, according to him. After sustaining injuries during the claimed suicide attempt, the suspect was detained and sent to the hospital. Murder and attempted murder were charged against him, Masondo said.

He said upon discharge from hospital the man will appear in court. At a house party, a woman allegedly kills her neighbor's husband.

A lady has been arrested in Mpumalanga for fatally stabbing a neighbor after he requested his wife return home from a party. An Eswatini man was sentenced to 18 years in prison for fatally stabbing his lover. Last year, a guy was sentenced to 18 years in prison for stabbing his girlfriend multiple times after discovering him at his brother's residence.
