Altercation: man kills lover then himself

2012-06-26 00:00

A 20-YEAR-OLD woman was shot dead, allegedly by her boyfriend during a domestic dispute in France township this past Saturday.

Sphamandla Ndlovu (24) allegedly shot his girlfriend Nonkuleko Zondi (20) in the head and then committed suicide. His body was discovered lying on top of Zondi on the floor inside the room.

A .38 special revolver was found in Ndlovu’s possession.

Police said they believe that during the day Ndlovu may have had an altercation with Zondi at the house. He then produced the firearm, held Zondi down on the ground and shot her once in the head, fatally wounding her.

They believed Ndlovu then turned the gun on himself.

A neighbour heard the gunshots and immediately contacted the owner of the house, Zondi’s father. Zondi’s father went to investigate and made the gruesome discovery of his daughter and her boyfriend.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident and a murder and inquest docket has been registered.
