‘A truly horrific and disgusting act’: Man pleads guilty to killing wife’s partner
A man has pleaded guilty to murdering his wife’s lover and her daughter and also sexually assaulting his son.
The 34-year-old, named in court documents only as N.T., was arrested in January this year.
He faces life in prison with a minimum of 20 years if found guilty.
In a statement to the court, prosecutors said N.R. confessed to killing his wife, her boyfriend, and their two daughters by cutting them into pieces.
He also sexually assaulted his son, according to the statement.
N.R.’s family told News24 the man is “a very intelligent man” and has a long history of mental illness.
In his statement, the man’s father, who did not want to be named, said N, a former marine, suffered from schizophrenia.
He said the man became angry and attacked his wife and her boyfriend after they found out that N.M. had been cheating on him.
N.’s mother, who is also a marine, told News12 that N.’s illness was severe.
N., a member of the National Marine Corps Reserve, was deployed to the Philippines in 2010, but was discharged after an altercation with a fellow marine.
N had a wife and two daughters, according a police report obtained by News24.
His wife and his mother told police that N., who worked as a construction worker, broke into their home and sexually assaulted them, breaking a window and grabbing their genitals.
N dragged his children to the living room and began abusing them, according the report.
N was hospitalized, and the abuse stopped.
In October 2015, N., along with his girlfriend and his son and daughter, were arrested in a domestic violence case, but N.D. never went to trial.
N’s son was arrested on December 17, 2016.
N is a married father of three, according his family.
He also served in the US Navy, according News24’s report.
In November, the family filed a restraining order against N., telling him to stay away from the victim and his two daughters.
The woman was still alive when the attack occurred.
The court filing noted that N.”has mental health problems including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and depression,” according to News24, which reported that the woman was “in need of counseling and was able to get some help from her daughter.”
The court document also said N.’d suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and depression.
It is not clear if N. N has a lawyer.
