Family murder case delayed

A retail store manager accused of killing his pregnant wife and 19-month-old daughter had his case postponed again yesterday.

Sibongiseni Abraham Msengemu, 26, appeared in the Tembisa magistrates' court where his hearing was postponed until May 28 for the director of public prosecutions to decide if it should be finalised in the Johannesburg high court.

Msengemu is alleged to have murdered his seven-months pregnant wife Felicia Mabizela, 19, and their daughter, Samukelo, in their rented room in Tembisa on Christmas Eve. - Pertunia Ratsatsi
