Durban - The case against a soldier who allegedly killed his girlfriend’s sister and shot and wounded three people in Ntuzuma, KwaZulu-Natal, was postponed on Monday.
He would bring a bail application when he appeared in the Ntuzuma Magistrate’s Court on February 17, National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson Natasha Kara said in a statement.
He was being held at Westville prison.
Last week, the 26-year-old went to Ebuhleni in Inanda looking for his girlfriend. He allegedly shot two of her sisters with an assault rifle. One of the women died on the scene. The other was wounded.
When police confronted him later, a shootout ensued, during which a police officer and a relative of the girlfriend were wounded. He fled the scene, but handed himself to Inanda police last Thursday.
