An abusive man killed himself after he had shot dead his girlfriend.

Two years previously France Xulu left his wife and children for his lover Nothando Mlondo (34).

According to Nothando's friends and family, she was tired of being abused by France and told him to leave.

However, he couldn't take the rejection.

He shot Nothando while she was sleeping in her house at Shaka's Kraal, on the north coast of KZN, yesterday morning before turning the gun on himself.

France apparently broke a window to get into Nothando's room after she had ended the relationship and kicked him out of the house.

According to Nothando's aunt, New (44), her niece phoned her on Thursday to say she had finally ended things with France and kicked him out.

New said Nothando told her France had not taken the news well and had been sending her death threats.

"She didn't take the threats seriously. None of us did.

"We thought we knew him well enough to know he wouldn't do anything bad.

"Nothando told me France had started beating her and that was why she told him to leave.

"It's sad that her decision to get out of an abusive relationship ended up costing her life."

New said the family had never approved of the relationship because France was a married man old enough to be Nothando's father.

"It spoiled the relationships we all had with his wife and kids."

New said this was the reason the family was relieved when the relationship ended.

"But now we are sad that her decision to get out has left her two kids without a mum."

KZN police spokeswoman, Captain Nqobile Gwala, said the motive was unknown but a murder charge and an inquest docket were opened.
