Craig Lucas is struggling to come to terms with the double murder tragedy which has struck his family.
The Cape Town singer – who won season two of The Voice SA – suffered the unthinkable earlier this month when his brother and sister-in-law were shot dead. According to Daily Voice, the couple were allegedly killed by their teenage son, who is facing charges of murder.
