A young couple have been found dead in their Mpumelelo home, in Pietermaritzburg’s France area, allegedly after a domestic dispute.

Responding to a report on Saturday, police found the bodies of an adult man and a woman, lying on top of each other on the floor of a room, said provincial SAPS spokesman Captain Thulani Zwane.

“The deceased were later identified as Sphamandla Ndlovu, 24, with a gunshot wound to his head, and his girlfriend Nonkululeko Zondi, 20, also with a gunshot wound to her head,” he said. Zwane said a .38 Special revolver was found in Ndlovu’s possession.

“Police believe that during the day Ndlovu may have had an altercation with Zondi at the house. He had then produced the firearm, held Zondi down on the ground and shot her once in the head, fatally wounding her,” he said.

Police believed Ndlovu may have then turned the gun on himself.

“Zondi’s father went to investigate and made the gruesome discovery of his daughter and her boyfriend,” Zwane said. – Daily News
