Pietermaritzburg - The man allegedly behind the murder of his brother-in-law at their home in Stork Road, Northdale, has handed himself in to police.

The man, whose name is known to The Witness but cannot be disclosed until he appears in court, handed himself in at the Mountain Rise police station yesterday after being on the run for a week.

It is believed the man evaded police by fleeing to Durban after shooting his sister, mother and brother-in-law.

The brother-in-law died in hospital two days after the shooting. It is believed he sustained several gunshot wounds after an argument ensued at the house.

The suspect’s mother and sister received bullet wounds to their legs.

Pastor Selvan Pakkari said the family was still too traumatised to comment.
