Dad killed on Father's Day

2012-06-20 09:12

Cape Town - It was a sad Father’s Day for a man from the Cape Flats who opened his front door to see his son, bloody and dying, stumbling into his house.

“He just said ‘daddy’ and then he fell down…I held my hand under his nose to check if he was breathing but about 10 minutes later there was nothing,” Jonas May, 56, told The Daily Voice.

His son, Raymond Herman, 36, had apparently been enjoying Father’s Day himself when he was stabbed, allegedly by his partner and the mother of his son, Raymond jnr, when he tried to stop her from attacking their landlady.

His enraged girlfriend then turned to him, swearing at him and stabbing him, but reacted with shock when she realised what she had done.

Witnesses said she started crying and ran into their home.

Christina Stoffels, 30, was later arrested and charged with murder.

    This is extremely sad for all concerned and carrying a knife or a weapon is what is happening too often in this country. i wonder if alcohol was part of it.

      the nigerians in sa cause far less problems than south african african males, i never see nigerians up for murder in the news, or nigerians up for armed robbery, yeah some of them sell what, they not murdering people or raping or stealing.

      @ Happy, they were not nigerians, open you eyes and have a look... where do you see a Nigerian with the surname "Stoffels"? @ Martin, Nigerians are behind alot of the urdering, stealing, fraud, robbery, the works! and if you think drugs arent as bad as murder, tell that to the many friends i have lost through addiction, take a drive around sunnyside in PTA or Hilbrow and post that comment again. take you blinkers off bud. they will stop at nothing for turf.
