Father denies confessing to children’s murder

A FORMER security guard accused of murdering his two children by cutting their throats near the end of 2009 admitted after his arrest that he had killed the children, a police officer testified in the Windhoek High Court yesterday.

Two children reportedly shot in head among 3 killed at Gentilly family’s home

A quiet neighborhood in Gentilly near Dillard University woke up Friday to a scene of stunning violence, with police reporting three people, including two young children, found killed inside of a home on Touro Street. Another victim was injured by a firearm and had been hospitalized. 

Few details about killings were immediately available, but Police Superintendent Michael Harrison was on the scene Friday morning. “It really rattles everybody,” Harrison said. “That’s why you see us all out here.”

The coroner’s office identified those killed as Jumyrin Smith, 6; Justin Simms, 10; and Monique Smith, 30. All three were shot in the head, according to sources cited by WWL-TV. 

At one point Friday morning, a crying man rushed toward the tan brick house, yelling “That’s my daughter! Those are my grandkids!” But he was held back by officers.

No information was available Wednesday morning about the cause of deaths, and police have not named any suspects. Black said in a released statement that there’s no risk to the public, but he did not elaborate.

Neighbors were stunned by the news. They said the family, with a young daughter and son, seemed nice.

It was the fun house, especially during summer when kids would gather there to jump on the trampoline, ride a child-sized ATV and play video games, said neighbor Frances Bonilla, whose 8-year-old child played there.

“They had all the games, and kids would go there to play with them. They were really nice to all of the kids,” Bonilla said. “My daughter told me the mom can make a mean Oreo shake.”
