Harties Man’s Case, Accused of Killing Wife and Stepdaughter, Postponed



Hartbeespoort man

The court has postponed the trial of a Hartbeespoort man who was accused last November of murdering his wife together with her daughter.

According to Jacaranda FM, Paul Prinsloo (61) was seen briefly in the Court of Magistrates in Brits on Monday morning; the court case will continue next Wednesday.

A scuffle reportedly broke out, and Prinsloo is said to have employed his hunting rifle to stop the confrontation, leading to the slaying of two women.

His arrest happened on 27 November 2023, just a few moments after paramedics had declared the death of the two patients, Magdaleen Prinsloo (58) and Ruzanne Weideman (31).


The case was later adjourned when the court heard that the investigating officer had been hospitalised, which meant a new officer’s appointment was required to speed up the bail application process.

Prinsloo looked frail as he sat in the box and cast a sideways glance at the family of his dead wife and stepdaughter. They were wearing tops, symbolising the blood spilt from the bodies of both women.
