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.

Detective sergeant Moses Shivolo told judge Nate Ndauendapo that Jonas Shinana (33) confessed to him on 28 December 2009 that he killed his two children and then wanted to end his own life, too, but failed.

Shinana allegedly made the confession four days after the bodies of his six-year-old son, Matheus Shinana, and three-year-old daughter, Emilia Naatye Shinana, were found at a bloody crime scene in his house in Wanaheda, Windhoek. The children’s throats had been slit. When the two children were found dead on the morning of 24 December 2009, Shinana was found lying next to them on a mattress with a piece of rope around his neck, after he had apparently

Inside the sparse, rented Balinese room where an Australian father died alone after being ‘stabbed multiple times in …

The heartbroken family of an Australian man found dead in his rented Balinese home believed he suffered a heart attack – until they saw the horrific crime scene photos.

Stephen James Richardson, 63, was found lying on a mattress in his rented home in Sanur in a pool of blood with wounds to his right arm, right cheek, and forehead.

In a graphic image sent to the family by police and supplied to Daily Mail Australia, the beloved father can be seen lying stark naked on a blood-soaked blue mattress.

Local police say a shattered bedroom window and broken glass cabinet door are evidence a violent struggle occurred before his ‘unnatural death’.

A knife was also reportedly found at the scene.

Ferndale son beat father to death, kept body for days in garage, police say

A Ferndale man beat his father to death with a hammer, hid his body in a garage for 1 ½ weeks, and dug a grave in the backyard to cover up the murder, according to police.

On Tuesday police responded to a faded pink two-story house at 6164 Grouse Circle, because a concerned family member hadn’t seen William Herman Koop Jr., 65, for weeks. At the home officers spoke with William’s son, Christopher Gregory Koop, 39, who confessed that his father’s body was in the two-car garage, police said.

Christopher Koop told officers they got into an argument over bills on April 13, when he “snapped” and repeatedly punched his father. He knocked his father out, got a hammer, and beat his unconscious father over the head, according to a prosecutor’s summary of the charges read in court.

Opening statements at Van Note double murder trial focus on father-daughter relationship, possible other suspect

“When you boil it down, you have a father’s fortune at stake, favorable expiring estate tax laws and defendant’s phone call at the scene,” Gilley concluded. “Follow the money. An intelligent, but bankrupt child, who despised her father.” Bath said police never investigated a man with a violent past whom William allegedly made a loan to and was the last person William made contact with before the attacks.

The disputed relationship, or lack thereof, between Susan Van Note and her father William Van Note was the subject of opening statements by the prosecution and defense team Tuesday morning in the second day of the double-homicide trial. 

Prosecuting Attorney Michael Gilley and lead defense attorney Tom Bath each spoke for about a half hour explaining to members of the jury the type of evidence they would be presenting and their theories to what happened
