A MAN (38) killed his two kids on Saturday before handing himself over to the cops.
The man from Empangeni in KZN took cops to a bedroom where his kids, aged two and seven, were hanging from the rafters.
He had apparently used his ties to hang them.
The incident allegedly happened after he had had an argument with the kids’ mum.
She had stepped out of the house when he allegedly decided to kill the kids.
The mum confirmed she was not home when the incident happened.
“The man who killed them is their father and he’s currently behind bars. That is all I can confirm,” she said.
A resident said he heard the couple arguing, but it wasn’t clear what it was all about.
“When the cops went to his house, they found a boy and a girl hanging from the roof,” he said.
KZN police spokeswoman Captain Nqobile Gwala confirmed a man was arrested in connection with the murder of two kids.
“The kids were found hanging in the bedroom at his place of residence in Esikhaleni. The suspect is expected to appear in court soon on charges of murder,” she said.
