Another case where Mom tried to leave the dickhead abusive father, and got shot for the trouble. It appears Dad had some sort of access to the child, and that it was some sort of drop-off that put Mom in harm's way. Then Daddy Dearest stabbed the 2-year-old daughter to death after he took off with her.
Once again, this is why men with histories of domestic violence should NOT have access to the kids after a separation or divorce. They tend to see kids as just "collateral damage" in their Big Daddy Drama.
The killer dad is identified as LOLO RAMOTSELA. (Notice how we're told this killer was a good dad, and all the usual crap.)
Father stabs child and hangs himself

IT WAS a tragic Woman's Month for a Pretoria woman whose husband shot her, stabbed their daughter to death and then committed suicide.
Lucrecia Mathedimotsa was admitted to Mamelodi Hospital after being shot in the hand by her husband who later stabbed their two-year-old daughter to death.
The 31-year-old husband, Lolo Ramotsela, committed suicide by hanging himself.
Ramotsela shot his wife of four years during a heated argument.
Mathedimotsa, who had moved out of the family home, said she arrived at her parents' house to find Ramotsela waiting for her in the car with the couple's daughter Koketso.
She said an argument had ensued.
Captain Jan Sepato said Ramotsela pulled out a firearm and fired a single shot at Mathedimotsa.
Lucrecia's aunt, Anna Mathedimotsa, said during the couple's argument, a child had rushed into the house shouting, "Lolo wants to kill Lucrecia".
"When I got to the gate I found that Lolo had already shot Lucrecia and still had the gun in his hand.
"I went with him [Lolo] into the house. He then left, saying he was going to call his uncle so he could help them solve their problems.
"His daughter cried for him and he left with her. That was the last time we saw them alive," she said.
Sepato said after the shooting, Ramotsela had taken the child with him to a friend's house and asked to spend the night.
When the friend went to check on them the following morning, he found Ramotsela hanging from the rafters and his daughter lying on the floor in a pool of blood.
A knife lay across her chest and she had several stab wounds to her upper body.
Anna Mathedimotsa said : "I cannot believe this has happened. They had an argument like any other couple .
"We only found out now that he used to assault her. She never told us about the abuse," she said.
"We loved her husband, he was a good father."
