Man who raped and murdered girlfriend’s six-year-old daughter gets multiple life sentences

Brown confessed that he had raped and sodomised Stacey Lee, choked her and threw her on the ground before striking her with a metal pan twice over the head.

A man who raped and murdered his girlfriend’s 6-year-old daughter was sentenced to life in jail in the Western Cape High Court.

Christopher Brown  killed little Stacey Lee Adams by beating her with a pan.

He entered into a plea agreement with the State after confessing to killing Stacey last year, Brown further admitted to strangling an ex-girlfriend and mother of his son in 2015.

Stacey Lee lived with her grandmother in De La Rey Street, Eastridge in Mitchells Plain, across the road from where her mother Sasha lived with Brown in a wendy house.

On Saturday June 23, 2018, Stacey went to see her mother, however Sasha had gone to Delft for the weekend and Brown had been home alone.

Brown confessed that he had raped and sodomised Stacey Lee, choked her and threw her on the ground before striking her with a metal pan twice over the head.

Brown then shoved Stacey’s dead body into two plastic bags and hid her under the bed while he cleaned her blood from the crime scene, he admitted.

Following a mass search Stacey Lee’s remains were found next to Brown’s wendy house.

After his arrest for the rape and murder, Brown also confessed to killing his former girlfriend Thulisa Lavisa, 22, however the case against him had previously been withdrawn for a lack of evidence.

Brown was handed two life sentences for Stacey Lee’s rape, another for her murder, a fourth for killing Lavisa, six months for assaulting her and three months for assaulting his brother when he had tried to enter the wendy house on the day he murdered Stacey Lee.
