Turin's bad luck , fate, Morgoth's curse or had Beleg made a poor choice of a sword?

Beleg drew his sword Anglachel, and with it he cut the fetters that bound Turin; but fate was that day more strong, for the blade of Eol the Dark Elf slipped in his hand, and pricked Turin's foot

I think it was a bit of Morgoth's curse but more the sword. Besides his mother and sister, Beleg was the most important thing to Turin and what better way for a curse to work than to take away someone he loved so much and who could keep him on a right path. But the sword was cursed also. Melian warned Beleg when he choose the sword, "There is malice in this sword. The dark heart of the smith still dwells in it. It will not love the hand it serves, neither will it abide with you long." Eol despised giving his sword over to Thingol and it seems he cursed it when he did so.

I agree with Dolwen. I think that it was both the curse of Morgoth on Túrin and the curse on the Anglachel that caused Beleg's death.
