'Dolly’s death was unfortunate'
Former DJ Donald Sebolai stabbed Dolly Tshabalala to death in his Soweto home during an argument in 2014.
JOHANNESBURG - Convicted killer Donald Sebolai has strongly disputed that he is a violent man, calling his girlfriend's stabbing "unfortunate."
Sebolai stabbed Dolly Tshabalala to death in his Soweto home during an argument in 2014.
The trial has been postponed to next month for sentencing.

The defence says although the accused has slapped two of his former girlfriends before, to "reprimand them" as he says, the incidents were not that serious.
Last week, a probation officer also testified that Sebolai's ex-partners, who he has children with, don't see him as a violent man.
But the State disagrees and argues that he fits the profile of a cold-blooded killer.
During the trial, the court heard how the radio DJ cleaned the blood stained floor, following the stabbing, while Tshabalala lay fighting for her life.

He later admitted that he could have saved her if he took her to hospital immediately.
