Durban - A KwaZulu-Natal man has married a woman who is accused of killing his daughter a year ago during an apparent exorcism.

Ntsikelelo Faku on Saturday married Nonhlanhla Mdletshe, 22, reported the Daily News.

Faku's daughter, Sinethemba Dlamini, 15, was found dead at her uMlazi home in March last year.

Her body had been disembowelled and her intestines were found lying next to her.

Four of her relatives and Mdletshe were arrested for her murder.

The accused claimed the teen had been possessed.

During their bail application last year, the investigating officer told the court that the accused had been praying for the teen because they believed she had been possessed by demons and they wanted "the code" to rid her of the demons.

Faku did not want to talk to reporters but the murdered girl's grandmother, Nokulunga Dlamini, said the family had been saddened to find out that Faku had married one of the people accused of murdering the girl.

The accused are set to go on trial in June this year.
