2013-07-04 14:22

Pretoria - A Pretoria woman has been arrested in connection with the murder of her husband, police said on Thursday.

Captain Doniah Mothutsane said the man was shot dead on Wednesday night at their home on Plot 17, Welbekend.

"Police were called to the home where they found an old man in his blue working suit lying on the floor and a .38 revolver with 43 live rounds on the bed," said Mothutsane.

Police said the 39-year-old wife seemed dazed when they spoke to her, and neighbours said there had been numerous incidents of domestic violence at the house.

The woman was expected to appear in the Bronkhorstspruit Magistrate's Court on Friday on a charge of murder.

    I have always wondered why people dont get out of abusive and irreconciliable relationships before its too late. Or is it living in hope or overdependence of the other?

      Google your question and you'll be surprised...

      Sbo Kubeka - 2013-07-04 15:00

      There is always a reason: joint assets, kids that are still too young, dependence. Before you know it's too late.

      Experienced a fight next door (which happened to be family) this week. Horrendous!! Got the fright of my life - how love can turn into what happened. The signs are there long before it actually happens

    This shows the brutal and violent nature of society today.Guns in a toxic environment is deadly as it goes to prove,one act,one moment of sheer madness and some person dead.Can we not talk about it?

      Mike Olwagen - 2013-07-04 15:43

      Guns aren't the problem. You can bleed yourself to death cutting yourself while shaving. It is the turkeys behind the guns.

      Mike Olwagen - 2013-07-04 15:45

      And the gay capital of the north. And the biggest Blue Bull contingent. What does that mean?.....A huge contingent of violent Drag Queens dressed up in Blue Bull shirts......lmao

    If you are man enough to lift your hands - be man enough when she retaliates! If she was the abuser, then face the music lady!

      If you are abused why don't you just go. Why wait for the limit.

  • Nan Sajini - 2013-07-04 15:20

  • Alan Goba - 2013-07-04 15:37

    we guys should stop domestic violence as the women gets tired of being a punching bag, but on the other side women should not always focus on hw much will be paid out when his husband is dead and speed up the process, we all have our arrivals and departure dates.

    A pistol with 43 live rounds? I have never heard a pistol or revolver with such a capacity.

      James Looch - 2013-07-04 16:29

      The rounds were not in the revolver, they were on the bed WITH the gun.

  • Singaka Mbele - 2013-07-04 16:07
