Former cop tried for wife’s murder

2008-06-02 00:00

A former inspector in the SA Police Services — who is in a wheelchair following an incident three years ago in which he is alleged to have shot dead his common-law wife before turning the gun on himself — is on trial in the high court in Pietermaritzburg.

The state alleges that on the day in question, Shabalala and Cele had an argument, and that he sent their son out of the house and then shot Cele several times in the bedroom, before turning the gun on himself, shooting himself in the forehead. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
