Either way, it is truly tragic. However, we had an evening of heated discussion on the "facts" we have heard in the press. Arguments why it would make no sense for him to deliberately shoot her that way, and others where it could indeed have been planned.

Since it is a hot bit of news...what do you think?

I'm not sure, South Africa is an incredibly dangerous place. I mean in the strictest sense of the word, he is guilty of murdering another human being. Whether that was intentional or not is not something for me to decide. In these situations, I feel like there should have been some sort of a system so they could indicate to each other "hi honey, it's just me, don't shoot me dead in the foyer". It's sad.

A matter of semantics. He is guilty of homicide, the taking of another human life. Murder is willful and unjustifiable. Manslaughter is accidental or due to negligence. It is to be determined by the court whether he is a murderer or not.
BTW the Bible commandment is do not "murder" NOT do not "kill".

I agree that IF it were a mistaken identity situation he was guilty of negligence. Firearm ownership and usage requires a heightened level of responsibility, for everyone.

There are so much burglary crimes in South Africa that
carrying a gun inside the house is a common thing. I
would go with the manslaughter charge.

The Bible is an irrelevant argument when speaking to a Pagan. And I did state that it wasn't for me to decide.

It is a matter of semantics and he obviously has reasons to fear for his life. He's a celebrity and knowing this there should have been extra precautions in place. Still, there are rumors saying that he was abusive in the past but so far the forensic evidence is showing that it was mistaken identity.

The whole thing is looking very sketchy. I read about a bloody baseball bat and that her head might have been smashed. It's sick. I hope justice will prevail.

I think what has come out so far can make a case for either side.

I think he did it from the evidence I've heard so far, especially the evidence that caught him in a lie.

I think he did it deliberately. I read how his neighbor saw the light on when hearing shots.
