Rooi is accused of shooting and killing his 57-year-old wife, Getrude Rooi, and his 30-year-old daughter, Goldie Landsberg, over the weekend.

The suspect is further alleged to have shot and injured two more people, one of whom has since also died, as was announced this afternoon.

At this point, Rooi stands charged with eight counts, including two of murder, four counts of attempted murder, and two counts of malicious damage to property.

He was denied bail, and his case was postponed to January 27, 2023, for further investigation.
