Durban - A man found guilty of killing his girlfriend was given two life terms in prison on Wednesday.
Gerald Rosselloty, 40, was sentenced to a further 15 years for arson by the Pietermaritzburg High Court.
Handing down sentence, Judge Rishi Seegobin described Rosselloty as a calculating, bloody-minded man who had a devastating impact on those around him.
He said Rosselloty's girlfriend Nokwazi Ntuli had suffered a cruel and undignified death.
“(Her) only crime was that she did not stay away from him, despite constant fighting and abuse,” said the Judge.
