I pay every day for what I did - Lotter

2012-03-05 09:13

Durban - The Westville woman who stands accused of killing her parents has told reporters how deeply she regrets her actions.

Nicolette Lotter, 29, is in the dock with brother Hardus, 23, and Mathew Naidoo, 25, for the brutal slaying of Riekie and Johan Lotter in their Westville home in 2008, reported the Sunday Tribune.

Speaking from prison, Nicolette denied being a Satanist and said she had always been a Christian.

She said she still prayed every day that her sister would forgive her. Christelle Lotter apparently cut all contact with Nicolette and Hardus after the murders.

Nicolette told reporters that she prayed every day for what she had done, and knew she would have to answer for her sins.

“I cannot look my mother in the eye and say: ‘You were right when you warned me about the company I kept.’ I cannot say to my father: ‘Thank you for your love and protection all my life.’

“If I get out of prison one day and should have a child, he or she will turn to me and say: ‘Where is granny? Where is grandpa?’ It will never be over.”

She said she knew she would pay for the crimes for the rest of her life.

The trial resumes on Monday. A psychiatrist is expected to testify.

  • Marlene - 2012-03-05 10:03

    Make your peace with God. Cause at the end of the day it doesn't matter what these people say or think of you. You killed your parents, for whatever reason, so you are right where you are meant to be... Good luck to you

  • Jou - 2012-03-05 10:07

    Your life is over and will never be the same again. Accept it.

  • Sinudeity - 2012-03-05 10:16

    Leave Naidoo out of it,it's a family issue.

      HiJack - 2012-03-05 10:47

      Why, he was part of it.

      Sinudeity - 2012-03-05 13:32

      some races don't want to take responsbility for their actions,the always blame it on a member of the other,the poor Indian guy is going down for crimes not committed by him,kotze's workers are being taken down for an act they forced to commit.

      jennawade.diane - 2012-03-07 10:11

      I agree

  • Tammy - 2012-03-05 10:18

    too little too late - you are where you belong and should stay there for the rest of your life

  • bella.koekelies - 2012-03-05 10:27

    God knows what really is in your heart. Real repentance(not remorse) will grant real forgiveness from God. The consequences, however, will remain; for the rest of your life. May God be merciful to you as to all of us.

  • Christopher - 2012-03-05 10:43

    Have children of your own...are you insane!! Oh yes... you are!!

  • Andre - 2012-03-05 10:47

    In spite of what she did, she can be forgiven. She is right, this will be her burden the rest of her life. What a burden! Judge not, lest you be judged too!

  • Merven - 2012-03-05 10:49

    Blablabla, so we must now feel sorry for her?

  • theO rAcLe - 2012-03-05 10:57

    We do not have to feel sorry for her...but she will pay for her deeds so why not leave it at that and not try crucify her further. She will get what she deserves through her sentence and suffering within.

      Merven - 2012-03-06 08:01

      She is just 'suffering within' to get sympathy from the courts.

  • theO rAcLe - 2012-03-05 10:59

    I also think that if she could turn back time the end result would be different.

      Sinudeity - 2012-03-05 13:34

      Do you have a crush on her?

      Merven - 2012-03-06 08:02

      'I also think that if she could turn back time the end result would be different.' Yes, she would make sure she didn't got caught.

  • theO rAcLe - 2012-03-05 11:03

    One last think...DO NOT TAKE THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU FOR GRANTED...Love, Cherish, Admire and Enjoy your close ones...

      Merven - 2012-03-06 08:03

      Finally some wise words from you.

      theO rAcLe - 2012-03-08 20:46

      Thanks Merve

  • Stan - 2012-03-05 11:13

    she didn't mean it

      Carol - 2012-03-05 15:11

      What exactly did she mean to do then

  • ivan.coetzee2 - 2012-03-05 11:16

    Ag shame, trying to play the sympathy card, I hope you rot in hell you little bitch along with your brother and boyfriend. They should sterilize you, just so you cant breed!

  • Pur - 2012-03-05 11:24

    Is she seriously expecting sympathy now because she is an orphan?

  • Mark - 2012-03-05 11:31

    And so you should! Just too bad you were only thinking about their money, and satisfying your carnal urges, when you butchered your parents. So now you've grown a conscience after you were caught. How sorry would you have felt if you had pulled off your crime and gotten away with it? Rot in jail.

  • Penny - 2012-03-05 11:40

    I feel incredibly sorry for the sister who lost not only her parents at the hands of both her siblings but entire family, how does one recover from that knowing that siblings you grew up and played with murdered both your parents? Tragic,my prayers and thoughts are with her.

  • Leendert - 2012-03-05 11:58

    Good, if only every murderer carried this burden.

  • Arthur - 2012-03-05 13:03

    If she truly regret her actions and pray for forgiveness, God will forgive her. She must still face the wraith of the law.

  • Johan - 2012-03-05 14:33

    Matt 7:1 Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way as you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

      Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back: Luke, I'm your father.

  • derrickvanzyl - 2012-03-06 03:22

    You god obviously does not listen when you pray. Pray harder or change gods.

  • levendal - 2012-03-07 09:41

    To those of us who would give anything to have a day with parents we have lost, this crime is incomprehensible.
