A South Australian man charged over the alleged killing of his partner and her two young children, had shared anti-domestic violence messages on social media.
30-year-old Steven Peet, is charged with three counts of murder after the body of his girlfriend Adeline Rigney-Wilson, 29, her daughter, six, and son, five, were found inside an Adelaide home on Monday.
The bodies were found in the Hillier home just after 1.30pm, following an alleged domestic dispute.
Peet was living with the family at the time – he is not the children’s father.
In February he shared a photo on Facebook, just after he had moved in with Ms Rigney-Wilson, which read: ‘The day you raise your hand on a woman, that day you’re no longer officially a man’.
Peet was taken to Lyell McEwen Hospital by paramedics, after police arrived at the home.
He was found outside the property with two other men, who have assisted police with their investigation.
Peet was arrested at hospital and taken into handcuffs while wearing a blue forensic jumpsuit.
He was taken to Elizabeth Police Station, where he was charged with three counts of murder.
It’s unclear how Ms Rigney-Wilson and her children were killed, however police have confirmed the deaths appeared to be related to a domestic dispute.
Peet is due to appear in court on Tuesday.
A crime scene has been set up by forensic investigators at the home.
