Life imprisonment for jealous ex-lover who murdered his former girlfriend, and their daughter

A Western Cape high court sentenced a man who murdered his former girlfriend, and their daughter to life imprisonment.

This is after Ryan Kyle Smith stabbed Altecia Kortje and their daughter, Raynecia Kortje to death back in June 2020, in Delft.

Western Cape National Prosecuting Authority spokesperson, Eric Ntabazalila said that this is a case of femicide committed by a jealous, possessive and abusive boyfriend who could not take it when his partner ended their romantic relationship.

"The High Court sentenced Ryan Kyle Smith to an effective life imprisonment and declared him unfit to work with children, unfit to possess a firearm, an order that has been entered at the National Child Register”, said Ntabazalila.

During court proceedings the court learned that the perpetrator had two children with the deceased, before they broke up due to his drug abuse.

In his Judgement on Thursday, he was given life imprisonment for Altecia’s murder, and 18 years for Raynecia’s murder but ordered the sentences to run concurrently.
