Solomon Nyantakyi, a Ghanaian footballer, was arrested by police in Italy on Wednesday morning for the double murder of his mother and sister.
The former Parma midfielder stabbed his mother and sister multiple times on Tuesday afternoon in the family home in Via San Leonardo in the city of Parma.
According to Football Italia, a sports news site based in Italy the stabbing was said to have shocked the city of Parma, as his elder brother Raymond Nyantakyi returned home from work on Tuesday evening and discovered the scene of the crime.
He found 43-year-old Nfum Patience and 11-year-old Magdalene Nyantakyi stabbed to death. Their father Fred was working in London at the time and trying to lay down roots for his family to follow.
Following hours of interrogation by the cops, the footballer confessed that he’s responsible for the double murder carried out in the home where the whole family (mother, father, two sons and daughter) live.
Solomon’s father was in London on official duty when the crime was committed. Both bodies were discovered by the 25-year-old son, Raymond, when he returned home after his shift with an engineering company. At the moment, a firm case is being prepared against the suspect by a prosecutor.
The Ghanaian footballer who was born in Accra moved to Italy when he was eight years old having lived with his family for the past 13 years.
