Sekgosese police have arrested a 19-year-old female suspect for murder  in Rooerfontein village outside Giyani in Mopani District.  The girl is accused of killing her father.

Police reportedly received a report of an argument between a father and daughter from a neighbor in Roerfontein village.  When Police arrived at the crime scene they discovered the body of a male  with a stab wound to his back and right arm and he was identified  as Edward Frank Ralekgokgo, aged 60 years.

 According to information currently available, the deceased allegedly had a heated argument with his wife.  The daughter called for public assistance when she saw her mother being attacked.  Thereafter, the father immediately attacked the daughter with a knife and managed to get the knife from the father and stabbed him.

 The deceased was pronounced dead at the crime scene by paramedics.  A motive for the incident is yet to be determined but domestic violence cannot be ruled out.

 The suspect is expected to appear before the Giyani Magistrate’s Court today.
