Man 'accidentally' kills pregnant wife

2011-04-14 07:53

Pietermaritzburg - A 35-year-old man is behind bars following the mistaken, fatal shooting of his heavily pregnant wife at their Hilton home in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

It is believed that the man told the police and his family members that he shot his 34-year-old wife in the chest by mistake. The woman died at Medi-Clinic hospital in Pietermaritzburg.

The incident happened at about 01:30 at their Hilton Gardens home.

The man’s younger sister, who cannot named until he appears in court, told The Witness that her brother called her family at about 03:45 to say that he had “made a terrible mistake”.

“He took her to Medi-Clinic hospital. When we got to the hospital we found him in a state of shock next to his wife, and he was not talking. Police were already there and they took him to his Hilton house before taking him to Hilton police station, which is where I last saw him,” said the sister.

Woken by a noise

Police said the man told them he was awoken by a noise outside his bedroom and armed himself before going to investigate. He opened fire and wounded his wife, who was coming out of the bathroom.

The couple have three children between the ages of 5 and 12. They are staying with the man’s mother. The couple had been married for about 13 years.

The couple’s double-storey house was empty when The Witness visited on Wednesday afternoon. The main gate was cordoned off with police crime scene tape. Behind the gate two dogs barked at strangers.

The man’s mother said the couple did not work.

She told The Witness, “He started by working for his father’s construction company, then his father bought him a farm in Albert Falls and this house. When his father died around 2005 the boy sold the farm.

“He invested the money he made out of selling the farm and has been living off these investments.”

Murder charge

A builder working in the neighbourhood said he saw the man entering his house at about 09:00 on Tuesday and saw the wife talking to a person in front of the house at about 16:00.

“Then as we were working this morning police came into the house at about 09:00. They came again at about midday and again at about 15:00 to cordon off the house,” said the worker.

Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Joey Jeevan said the man is expected to appear in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court shortly to be charged with murder.

    what about the baby????????????

      Daemos1 - 2011-04-14 08:26

      probably dead if they don't mention it

      Singo - 2011-04-14 08:31

      Lets hope the baby survived Kimmie.But depending on the circumstances,the mother was shot on the chest, which seems like the doctor's first option was to save the mother's life first.

      Oh the joys of living in a crime-ridden SA...methinks pres. Zuma should stand trial as an accomplice for his inability to handle the crime rate!

  • John - 2011-04-14 08:04

    This guy is damn stupid. Didn't he notice that his wife was not in bed with him? Doesn't he also realise that 99.999% of noises in a house are quite normal. What about his children getting up in the night? Maybe they have had a few close calls with this idiot. You indentify a target before you shoot at it, especially when the area is crowded with innocents, such as his family. I have no sympathy for him but a lot of sympathy for his children and his deceased wife.

      larrikin - 2011-04-14 08:11

      on point there John,

      Flee - 2011-04-14 08:18

      John, they say the kids didnt live with him, but regardless how idiotic not to realize your wife is not next to you?? I feel for him in the sense that he has to live with the fact for the rest of his life, unfortunately with crime these days people become so paranoid and frustrated they feel the need to arm themselves..... Pity

      betweenu&me - 2011-04-14 08:18

      The husband's story sounds a bit fishy. Or else News24 hasn't published all the details of the incident - this version of the story could be misleading (like the axe story). Let's wait and see.

      Thomas - 2011-04-14 08:35

      John I hear what you say, but you want to say that you are perfect come on accidents are unplanned events and you never expect it also if the man wanted to kill his wife would he have called the family and been in shock and everything, but I see now you are probably perfect right.

      Dan - 2011-04-14 09:12

      I agree and reading your comment does pose some new questions. Was it maybe not by accident. A man living of the life earnings of his late father for the past 5 years doesn't seem like someone in the right state of mind in the first place. A person with so little dignity, self respect and ethics could probably stoop low enough to kill his wife. Maybe she has nice life cover too and he needs more money to fund his "doing nothing" lifestyle.

      Frungy - 2011-04-14 09:12

      The guy was stupid, but not for the reasons you state John. He should never have advanced into trouble with his gun. You use a gun as a last resort once you've retreated until you can't retreat anymore. He should never have been allowed a gun if he didn't understand this most fundamental rule of gun use, it's a last option when all else fails, not the first choice.

      John: I think you are the idiot. In this country everybody is a bit jumpy when they here strange noises. Unfortunately your ability to think clearly under stress is impaired and you react before you think. It almost happened to me. Your first instinct is to protect your family... no matter what it takes. I feel very sorry for this man and his family.

      hf44083 - 2011-04-14 10:03

      @Flee, I think the article is perhaps badly worded, I read it that the kids are "Now with his mother" since the faterh is in jail and mother dead. I did not read it that thay had been staying with his mother prior to this. Matter of interpretation.

      rugdusty - 2011-04-14 10:19

      There is no where near enough information for people to make these broad assumptions. Could have been planned , could have been a mistake, could be that he is highly intelligent and lazy , could be that he is really stupid and mentally weak . Could be that she had a huge life insurance policy ... who knows... these poor children i hope they find a way of living some sort of a normal life knowing that their father killed their mother. And this was their 4th child ... with no job ... doomed before it was born .

      Snotty - 2011-04-14 12:12

      this is the reporters story nobody knows if this was intentional or an accident yet when anyone hears a sound they react and it must have been dark he may have seen a shadow coming out of the bathroom and fired without realizing that it was his wife don't judge before the facts are known sad for the kids I guess he is well off as he didn't work poor unborn baby!!

      Meanleader - 2011-04-14 12:23

      John .... heavily pregnant !!! She obviously slept on another bed . Connect the dots son ! The rest of your post just needs too much to comment on .

      JOHNNYBRAVO - 2011-04-14 13:27

      agreed.

      Flee - 2011-04-14 13:42

      hf44083... You are right it is a matter of interpretation... I would think, the way it is worded and the fact that there is no mention of the other children anywhere else in the article, that they were not present at the time of the indecent... Not sure now?

      Dan - 2011-04-14 15:33

      Remember a couple of years ago the very same thing happend to Springbok lock Rudi Visagie. Saw his child as burglar and accidentally shot her. These things do happen in a crime sick society and I suppose it could happen to anyone of us. That is now if that is really what happened. Something in the story just seems strange - maybe just poor reporting.

      Seems that way. DV. Maybe news24 will get the bug sorted. have a good day - hope those hiccups don't keep on.

      April - 2011-04-14 10:11

      Yes daaivark, accidents do happen and until proven differently I shall consider it so. We are all so full of doom and gloom that we all immediately assume murder, and call those affected murderers, idiots or stupid, but the fact remains that accidents do happen. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?

    Didn't he notice his wife wasn't in the bed when he got up. Most people normally confirm with their wife if they actually heard correctly first b4 investigating the noise.

      Wendy - 2011-04-14 11:44

      Really good point. My hubby and I have different sleeping habits and most times "we" are the noise in the house. Oh dear - best check with him .......

  • lynnea.gough - 2011-04-14 08:11

      surely he must have noticed his wife wasn't in bed with him???

      Michael, depends how you read it... the kids are staying with the mother could be after the fact. The writing of this report is so bad but that is the way I interpreted it.

      Agreed. If you have three other small kids in the home and wake up and your wife is not in bed next to you the last thing you do is randomly fire off shots!!!

    Every gun owners worst nightmare!i stand corrected but the law requires the owner to be shot, stabbed first before he can even think of firing at sum1 (self defense) so this dude is pretty screwed. do feel for him and his family though

      daaivark - 2011-04-14 09:44

      With respect, guns breed violence, I have lived in SA all my life, and in some pretty questionable areas of the Cape Peninsula, and still would never consider owning a gun or even permitting one in my house.

      @ daaivark...Yes...You don't permit it, but what about those that come into your house uninvited with guns?....better to have one and not need it, than need it and not have one...nie waar nie?

      Rustum X - 2011-04-20 20:18

      Daaivark? Last I knew it was only violent people that abuse guns. Violent people are always drawn to weapons. And they'll use anything. When I grew up in Bonteheuwel, all the violent guys carried knives. I don't see you emptying your kitchen drawer. Be consistent with your ideology.

    If ever there was a case for stricter gun control in South Africa, this is it. Giving access to firearms to people like this is even more dangerous than having them in the hands of criminals. This was no accident, one doesn't accidentally disable the safety on a firearm. This man was mentally and technically unfit to wield the weapon, and his wife paid far too high a price for his paranoia and ineptitude.

      Bottom line - 2011-04-14 09:05

      Willem, how do you then think people should protect themselves in this state were murderers and rapists roam the streets? Put the blame were it should be, on the criminals, the murderers, the thiefs and the rapists and the ANC for allowing this while singing "kill the boer" and wasting tax money.

      daaivark, my point is this: route course analysis of why people needs weapons = disfunctional state were people are murdered for R200 and a cell phone. What does the state do about this = nothing.

      jacques - 2011-04-14 11:08

      Well, I see my previous comment was deleted.. interesting. Do a bit of research on gun control. It has FAILED in every single country it has been implemented. It has never reduced crime. Don't fool yourself, it is a political tool only and has never done any good for people. SA already has some of the toughest gun control in the world. Has crime been reduced, do we feel safer now? Nope! The right to life means nothing without the means to protect it. Are you happy to place your safety in the hands of our police? I feel a lot better knowing I take my safety of my family more seriously than that.

      Bottom line - 2011-04-14 11:19

      Rustum X - 2011-04-20 20:27

      I almost responded in the wrong way. But I think I see what Willem says. Make guns accessible only to strictly and fully evaluated people. Not make it impossible for people to get guns. The only practical way to solve this is to declare all guns illegal and have the police shoot on sight anyone in possession of a gun. Any other way will just ensure that criminals will have guns. Until then just be as thankful as I that due to my gun, there are two violent criminals less.

      Rustum X - 2011-04-20 20:33

      @daaivark Rather spend your energies being against aggression. Guns just happen to be handy to violent people. Take the guns away and they will use something else. But I agree with you. People getting shot is damn messy. It is much more elegant to destroy lives by repossessing a house just because someone was made redundant at work and cannot find replacement employment. Like crime it is nothing personal. Just money.

  • tyrone jacoby - 2011-04-14 08:24

    I have a feeling there is much more to this story then is being told, I have to agree with John's post earlier, You have 3 children heay a noise? you dont check if you wife is with you as you get up ?? you dont check your children? I dont buy this for 1 minute, I reckon some facts will come out as this case unravels,But condolences to the families involved for the death of their daughter/sister, and the unborn child there seems to be no report on??

      abs230653 - 2011-04-14 12:36

      Read the story properly. The children weren't living in the house with them, and yes the story is very fishy !

  • Bol - 2011-04-14 08:25

    Neither of them working, 3 kids with one on the way, they obviously can't look after the three they already have because they are with one of the grandparents, not investigating noises before shooting... it speaks for itself.

      DeonL - 2011-04-14 09:44

    Something is not right here. I do agree that he should have known that his wife was not in bed with him. And yes he should have been a responsible father and took his kids in consideration before opening fire. My heart goes out to the family and his unborne baby...by the way , is the baby allright? I say investigate the case with due diligence and if there seems to be a prima facie case, proceed with trial procedures.

  • Father-Time - 2011-04-14 08:27

  • DA-KINGPIN - 2011-04-14 08:29

    This is a murder people, if it looks and quacks like a duck, then chances are it's a duck!!! How could you be married for 13 years and "suddenly" shoot your wife at night thinking its a burglar?! Someone check what the status of his wife's life insurance policy!!! My theory is the guy was probably financially struggling and this was his way out...

      DeonL - 2011-04-14 09:50

      Murderers usualy try to get away with it, like get rid of evidence and don't confes so soon, let us wait for the investigation etc. It sounds like the writer also think it is murder with the: 'accidenatally'.

  • Belisarius - 2011-04-14 08:31

    Waking up in the middle of the night with suspicious noises can be disorienting and alarming - especially if you are permanently paranoid from the rampant violence and crime in the country. I've woken up with three prowlers on our property in the past year alone - none of them could get into the house, though. Panic and fear can make a person react without careful thought. People should train themselves and their families what to do in emergency situations, to avoid this sort of panic driven action.

  • NEWGORDON - 2011-04-14 08:32

    There is no such thing as shooting somebody by accident. The man is a bloody dobble murderer.

      DeonL - 2011-04-14 10:02

      I know of at least cases (accidental shooting). Vleis Visagie shot his own daughter when she was climbing through a window- she slipped out, did not tell them. Another woman, called her boss when someone was trying to crawl through her window, he shot the person, it was her grandson- This was a big story as the owner was white, the rest black.

    There is no such a thing as a accidental shooting. The man is a doubble bloody murderer

  • Garth Coetzee - 2011-04-14 08:34

    "The man’s younger sister, who cannot named until he appears in court" Really?? Do you people not have editors??

  • Wikus - 2011-04-14 08:35

    Not written well, your wife is not lying next to you and you do not notice it... Fishy fishy

    He is locked up isnt he. Then police know or strongly believe he shot his wife knowingly. I hear sounds in my house and first thing I do check if my wife is next to me then check my daughters room. This is fishy trust me. If it is an accident he has got a guilt for the rest of his life.

    Maybe I've been watching too many crime series but this sounds deliberate.

    If medication (Such as sleeping pills) were involved this can cause people to be disorientated add to this fear and you have a serious scenario. This must be unimaginably difficult for the man and his family and friends to deal with, it`s a hell of a hard way to learn. No one deserves this. May they all find the strength to put their lives together. This messed up country doesn't deserve all the good folk that live here. My dream would be for all the good people to find contentment, safety and happiness. PS Why does the journalist put accidently in inverted commas?

      Dream on Rob, welcome to the real world ! Sleeping pills and firearms do not go together if that was the case, pure speculation.

      TruthHurts - 2011-04-14 09:02

      Ha Ha! Well you DO get "wife men" too these days! Only they cant fall pregnant.

    Waking up in the middle of the night with suspicious noises can be disorienting and alarming - especially if you are permanently paranoid from the rampant violence and crime in the country. I've woken up with three prowlers on our property in the past year alone - none of them could get into the house, though. Panic and fear can make a person react without careful thought. People should train themselves and their families what to do in emergency situations, to avoid this sort of panic driven action.

      I agree, due to anxiety and Insomnia a lot of people take sleeping pills and or anxiety pills, this makes them even more disorientated.

      daaivark - 2011-04-14 09:54

      Knowing that, then what the hell is he doing with a gun close at hand?

  • njabulo bulo - 2011-04-14 08:42

    another insurance scam in KZN.

      DeonL - 2011-04-14 09:32

      No, you can't get a policy paid out to you if you killed the other person, even if it was an accident.

  • Grey B - 2011-04-14 08:43

    I smell something fishy.

  • Freakfloyd - 2011-04-14 08:44

    The money was running out, and we will see a nice insurance policy, very fishy, Don't belief a word. You killed her, To lazy to work and living off the money your Dad left you!!!!!

      Vaal Donkie - 2011-04-14 08:50

      Yes, one shouldn't be allowed to enjoy the fruit of one's labours. Viva la revolucion!

      DeonL - 2011-04-14 10:08

      You can't get money from a insurance policy when you are the person that caused the death. If you are left enough money you can live from the interest alone, a few million +- R5m, should do the trick if you don't have any debts.

  • zulufox - 2011-04-14 08:47

    what a tool! this guy is guilty!!!

  • Vaal Donkie - 2011-04-14 08:49

    I'm sorry, but the man either wanted to cash in on her life insurance, or this is another piece of propaganda by the saps to "encourage" us to hand over our weapons.

      daaivark - 2011-04-14 09:55

      Propaganda? You have to be joking!

      Vaal Donkie - 2011-04-14 10:26

      Why would you say that?

      Susannomore - 2011-04-15 06:58

      How exactly is this propaganda? It is a report of a man shooting his wife - witha gun. I fail to see you propoganda point.
