      A Bloemfontein man, his wife and their daughter were shot dead before
      being burnt in their car, according to the police.

      Louis Badenhorst (82), his 63-year-old wife Henrietta and their daughter
      Mihanna had arrived at a guesthouse in Clarens on Friday for a holiday.

      The three were returning from a nearby shop on Saturday when a man who
      worked at the guesthouse allegedly shot them.

      The killer was apparently assisted by another man to help put the three
      corpses into the family's car before driving to a township about 3km
      away, where the victims' vehicle was doused with petrol and set alight.


      The bodies burnt inside the car, Free State police said.

      The motive for the killing was not known.

      The suspect and two alleged accomplices were arrested yesterday, the
      police said. - Sapa
