Wife and son jailed for husband's murder
Get 5-year sentence after telling court he was abusive towards them
A Limpopo woman and her son were jailed for five years each by the Sekhukhune Regional Court for killing her abusive husband.
Nkoto Franinah Selepe, 50, and her 30-year-old son Mtswatswala were sentenced this week for the 2010 murder, police spokesman Constable Shaqelo Lesufi said.
They assaulted the husband after he abused his wife. He later died in hospital.
“The police hope this will send [a] clear message to the community to report domestic violence to the police, and not to take the law into their own hands,” Lesufi said.
