Drunk Man pounds Mother, Two Sisters to Death at Jirapa


A man identified as Anthony Yendor has been accused of pounding his mother and two sisters to death.

It was gathered that the three women — his direct relatives — were Bozomo Yendor, 60, the mother of Anthony Yendor; Rebecca Yendor, 22, and Cynthia Dabuo, 45 — his sisters were pounded to death.

A fourth victim, a male infant of eight months, who was strapped behind her mother while she was under the violent attack, is on admission at the Jirapa Saint Joseph Hospital, seriously wounded.

According to reports, the Regional Crime Officer, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Reynolds Manteaw, said the incident happened around 8:00 p.m. last Sunday when Anthony Yendor, an illegal gold miner, returned from a drinking spot in town and rushed into the mother’s kitchen, picked a pestle and started pounding the victims without any provocation.

The crime officer said they were investigating the incident, and would arraign him in due course.
