Johannesburg - A father who allegedly shot dead his daughter’s boyfriend and the young man’s father is expected to appear in the Boksburg Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

Retief Liebenberg of Benoni was arrested last Thursday in connection with the shooting of 19-year-old Dewalt “Poena” Visser - his daughter Chevonne’s boyfriend - and the boy’s father Dewalt Visser, 46, in his home.

Beeld reported that Liebenberg did not approve of the relationship between Poena and Chevonne as he had heard rumours that Poena was taking drugs.

He arrived at his home in the Ebotse Golf Estate in Rynfield, Benoni, that day to find Poena in the house, after he had apparently banned his daughter from seeing him.

He appeared in the same court on 5 November but the case was postponed.
