Police: Man killed by family for watching soccer

JOHANNESBURG David Makoeya, a 61-year-old man from the small village of Makweya, Limpopo province, fought with his wife and two children for the remote control on Sunday because he wanted to watch Germany play Australia in the World Cup. The others, however, wanted to watch a gospel show.

Police spokesman Mothemane Malefo says, "He said, 'No, I want to watch soccer. That is when the argument came about."
