An S.A woman has allegedly murdered her partner and their four-year-old daughter by dousing them with petrol and setting them on 
The man identified as Khulekani Mshibe and their daughter died from the burn wounds sustained from the fire set at their home last Sunday.
Reports have it that the said woman and the couple’s other daughter who is one and were also burnt during the incident, are in a critical condition at a hospital.
According to some of the couple’s neighbours who spoke with The Sowetan, their relationship has been volatile.
A neighbour who asked that his identity is kept hidden said;
“We knew that they fought a lot. We would frequently hear them arguing. The woman was shouting at Khulekani and was accusing him of cheating and that she would kill the kids and herself if he left them,” he said.
“It seems like when they all went to sleep she got up, locked the door and doused them with petrol before setting everyone on fire,” he said.
Sizwe Nkomo, another neighbour, said;
“The children’s screams were chilling and we heard them from a few houses away. They could not escape and we could not enter the shack,” he said.

Police spokesman Captain Hector Netshivhodza, who confirmed the incident, said;
“At the moment we haven’t been able to question anyone because nobody saw who started the fire or who was there around the time the fire started. No arrests have been made,” he said
