Durban - A man found guilty of killing his girlfriend was given two life terms in prison on Wednesday.

Gerald Rossolloty, 40, was sentenced to a further 15 years for arson by the KwaZulu-Natal High Court Pietermaritzburg High Court.

Handing down sentence, Judge Rishi Seegobin described Rossolloty as a calculating, bloody-minded man who had a devastating impact on those around him.

He said Rossolloty's girlfriend Nokwazi Ntuli had suffered a cruel and undignified death.

"[Her] only crime was that she did not stay away from him, despite constant fighting and abuse," said the Judge.

Rossolloty admitted to killing Ntuli and setting fire to the body.

During the trial, the court heard that Rossolloty also raped a 6-year-old girl.

Rossolloty had previously been sentenced for two aggravated assaults.

    Can they now hand over the same sentence to all other murderers and rapists too please. Then maybe we can start saying that justice is being served.

    There is no reason why the law abiding tax payers of this country should pay his rent and food bill for the next 40 yrs, crimes like this should not even be given any jail term, once convicted, off with your head !

    What this article doesn't tell you is that he has been found guilty before (and, if memory serves, served time) for prior cases of rape, assault and drunken driving. Having come across him a few times in a social environment some years ago, it was painfully obvious then that he was a narcissist and was trouble waiting to happen, he was one of those people who you just knew, that after a few drinks, would be very quick to sort problems out with his fists then claim to be the victim. The Judge in this case has also insisted that the judgement in this case be sent to the correctional services to ensure that when he falls eligible for a parole hearing, that they read and see the gravity of the case and decline the application outright ensuring his long term carceration. Sleep with one eye open Gerald!

    Bring back the death sentence using the poison needle.
