PIETERMARITZBURG - A man is behind bars for allegedly raping and then killing a woman, her daughter and granddaughter in the Sobantu township of Pietermarizburg.
The family of 65-year-old Zanele Ndlelais is desperate for answers.
The incident happened on Monday night. Police arrested the 29-year-old following information from neighbours. He's expected to appear in court on Thursday morning.
"Police officers at the Mountain Rise police station attended to the incident and opened a docket with three counts of murder and two counts of rape for investigation," police spokesperson Jay Naicker said.
"While at the scene, police questioned people in the area and the information received led them to a house of a 29-year-old man who was last seen with the victims.
"They proceeded to the man’s residence with the hope of getting more information to assist with the investigation.
"They were stunned to find the man in blood-stained clothes. He failed to provide police with a satisfactory response for the blood stains on his clothes. He was arrested and charged with three counts of murder and two counts of rape."
