'A MAN will face court on Tuesday charged with the murders of his partner and her two children, who were found dead in their home on the outskirts of northern Adelaide.
Police discovered the bodies of Adeline Yvette Rigney-Wilson, 29, and her two young children inside the remote Hillier farmhouse, near Gawler, at 1.30pm on Monday.
As details emerge about the tragic circumstances of their deaths, Ms Rigney-Wilson’s partner, Steven Graham Peet, 30, remains in police custody.
He is due to be charged with the murders of Ms Rigney-Wilson and her two children – a boy, 5, and a girl, 6.'
'The Advertiser understands Peet, who was on a disability pension, is not the father of the children.'
'Ms Rigney-Wilson had only been living with Peet at the property for the past six weeks, her sister said.
Her sister described Ms Rigney-Wilson and her children as “beautiful”.
“She was a strong, black woman,” she said.'
'Barossa Local Service Area officer-in-charge Chief Inspector Alby Quinn said the nature of the crime was very traumatic.
Chief-Insp Quinn said the man and the victims were known to each other and that officers were not searching for any other suspects.
“This does appear to be domestic-related and we are not looking for any other further persons in relation to this incident,” he said.'

Neighbours in shock after bodies of Adeline Rigney-Wilson and her children found at Hillier home
43 minutes ago
'THE farmhouse on the outskirts of Gawler is set away from surrounding homes, and neighbours say they had never noticed its occupants.
As dusk settled last night, local residents expressed shock at the deaths of mother Adeline Rigney-Wilson and her son and daughter, aged five and six.'
'The brown brick-and-tile home sits near the middle of a block of about 5ha, which is earmarked to be subdivided for housing.
Surrounded by trees at the end of a 300m driveway, the house would normally attract no sidewards glances, but on Monday night motorists slowed down as a throng of media crews and police vehicles attracted their attention.'
'Police said the alleged murder of the woman and children was the result of a domestic dispute — another black mark in what has become a tragic national toll.'

Oh no no no no!!
Godspeed Adeline and her two precious babies
Adeline was beautiful. I really want to know why this evil nutter murdered 3 innocents and not just himself.

Another recent 'black mark' in 'a tragic national toll':
Talk is cheap. We need a Royal Commission into Family Violence and Homicide in Australia.

First of all, as Adeline was described as a 'strong black woman' by one of her relatives in an MSM article above; her murder should not be spoken of as a 'black mark' almost blotting Australia's copybook (as if women; and particularly, Indigenous women, being seriously or mortally injured as a result of intimate relationship violence are unusual events!)
Secondly, because her and her wee childrens' deaths are seen as another statistic in a 'tragic national toll' so, yes, Adeline and her children are being depersonalised and their tragic murders converted to mere percentages.
Adeline's and her little children's murders (and the murder and subsequent lack of justice for Lynette 'Norma' Daley, among other women) are not just '(an)other black mark(s) in what has become a tragic national toll'. They were living, breathing souls with futures full of potential whose lives were cut all too short by people who were supposed to love, protect and, most of all, respect them.
Also, I have yet to see widespread outrage, and/or marches up and down the country by the masses, in reaction to the murders of Lynette and now Adeline and her children (such as there were in the equally tragic deaths of Luke Battye and Jill Meagher; for example).
A sad and sorry state of affairs. Women's and children's lives matter; regardless of any 'perceived differences' to the 'prevailing majority', 'race', 'religion' or 'culture'.

'THE grieving mother of slain woman Adeline Yvette Rigney-Wilson says she never thought the lives of her beautiful daughter and grandchildren “would end like this”.
On Tuesday morning, Donna Rigney told The Advertiser her heart was torn between grief and fury following the shock discovery of three bodies at Hillier on Monday afternoon.
“Adeline was beautiful, she was so beautiful. The human feeling, the emotion, is I want revenge but I can’t do that,” she said.
“It’s in the good Lord’s hands. They are in the good Lord’s hands. We’ve got God and he will sort this out — and the devil will take care of his own.
“I never thought it would end like this.”
Donna Rigney said she was struggling to come to terms with the shock loss of her daughter, who they knew as Yvette, and grandchildren, Corey, 5, and Amber, 6.
Names and images of the victims have been published with the family’s permission.
Police discovered the bodies of Yvette, 29, and her two young children inside the Hillier farmhouse, near Gawler, about 1.30pm on Monday.
Yvette’s partner, Steven Graham Peet, 30, has been charged with her murder and that of her two children.
He appeared in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Tuesday afternoon and did not apply for bail.'
'She said the family had yet to decide how to break the news of their deaths to Yvette’s surviving son, Seanie, 7, who lives with his father, also named Sean.
Sean Snr is the father to Yvette’s three children.'

Alleged Hillier triple murderer Steven Peet's plea delayed to allow for forensic reports

'A man charged with murdering a mother and her two young children at a property in Adelaide's north will not be required to enter a plea for at least another 12 weeks while forensic reports are prepared.'
'Their alleged killer, Steven Graham Peet, faced the Adelaide Magistrates Court through a video link from prison.
Prosecutor Lisa Dunlop asked the court for a longer-than-usual adjournment to allow time for forensic reports to be completed.
"There is a significant amount of material to come, we have an estimated completion date of the forensics [of] eight weeks from last Friday," she said.
"We are still chasing up other matters including a pathology report."
Peet's lawyer, Andrew English, said it might be "some considerable time" before his client was in a position to answer the charge.
The case was adjourned until November, but Peet may not be required to enter a plea then unless all of the outstanding documentation has been provided in advance.'
