Dad kills wife, then himself

THREE children, aged between four and 11 years, have been orphaned after their mother was knifed to death and their father committed suicide.

After reportedly assaulting and fatally stabbing his wife, the father of four shot himself in the head, dying instantly as police were preparing to enter the house on Thursday evening.

Inside the house police found the bloodied body of the 39-year-old mother of three children in the kitchen and that of her 51-year-old husband in the bathroom.

The couple were in the process of divorcing when they died in their home in Jasmin Street, Bronkhorstspruit, in Gauteng.

Their children, a four-year-old boy and two girls, aged 11 and five years, were at home when the deaths occurred. The husband also had a son from a previous marriage.

Neighbours said they heard the couple quarrelling late in the afternoon when the 11-year-old ran out of the family home screaming for help. A neighbour comforted her and stopped a passing car that drove them to the police station to get assistance.

Spokesman for the Bronkhorstspruit police cluster Johannes Japhta said that when police officers arrived at the house the gates were locked - with the young children standing near the house's garage.

"The police rammed the locked gate to gain entry ... a gunshot went off and when they got into the house, they discovered the two bodies."

A murder case and an inquest docket have been opened.

When're we gonna understand marriage and too what do pastors tell people about marriage,they're telling them that is a shop of candy may be ?
This is also what couples who're about to get married must be told (1 Corinthians 7:28)
But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned "BUT THOSE WHO MARRY WILL FACE MANY TROUBLES IN THIS LIFE AND I WANT TO SPARE YOU THIS"

This is senseless, if it was me, I will only kill myself, then thinking about it, with 5 strong and well mannered sons and a loving and respectfull professional wife, why should I kill myself, there is no need

Flemza: Why dont you just say, you will kill yourself first and then think about your sons and wife?
