Durban - The man accused of raping a six-year-old girl and murdering his girlfriend has been found guilty in the Pietermaritzburg High Court on Tuesday.
Gerald Rosselloty, who defended himself claiming his State-appointed counsel was incompetent and did not follow his instructions, would be sentenced on Wednesday.
Rosselloty was convicted of raping the girl in 2006 and murdering his girlfriend Nokwazi Ntuli on April 17, 2010.
He was also found guilty of arson, having set fire to the simplex where he murdered Ntuli.
Ntuli's burnt body was found on a mattress two kilometres from where Rosselloty was staying at the time.
