Main Stories

THE man accused of stabbing to death his two sons, aged two and five, in Port Moresby on April 27, has yet to be charged because police are waiting for the psychiatrist’s report, Metropolitan Commander Supt Gideon Ikumu says.
“The psychiatrist has yet to review the father’s mental status,” he said.
“Also, he is being held in the Boroko police station for his own personal safety, to prevent him from harming others and from harming himself.
“His wife is also expected to be interviewed to determine the cause and establish what actually happened at that time to trigger such a heinous act.”
Supt Ikumu said yesterday that the 29-year-old man was suspected to be mentally-ill.
The man, an employee of a technology company, stabbed his sons in his Morata 1 settlement home on April 27 after an argument with his wife.
Supt Ikumu is appealing to friends and relatives affected by the killings to remain calm and allow police to investigate the crime.
“Witnesses are requested to tell police what they know,” Supt Gideon Ikumu said.
