Johannesburg police say a man and woman were found dead in their home in Protea Glen, Soweto, yesterday.

The 44-year-old nurse and her 47-year-old husband both died of bullet wounds.

An unlicensed firearm, reported stolen in Mpumalanga, was found near the man's body.

The woman is believed to have served her husband with divorce papers on Monday.

It was the fourth family murder in less than a week.

A Centurion grandmother is in hospital after apparently trying to commit suicide after shooting her 30-year-old son and smothering her two-year-old grandson.

In Bloemfontein, a police member killed his mistress and her three children before committing suicide.

In Richmond in the Northern Cape, a farmer killed his wife, two daughters and himself.
