AN UNCLE is pictured in court after allegedly murdering his nephew by chopping him up with a machete.
Mahadeo Suhnandan, 50, reportedly killed 29-year-old Neraz Roberts last week while the younger man’s aunt begged him to stop.
According to authorities, Suhnandan admitted to the murder on June 12, telling them, “I chopped him up.”
“I’ve had enough,” he reportedly said. “All his life he wanted to kill me. I hacked him up.
“I heard Neraz say he would kill me if he caught me outside,” he said. “I got my ‘Cutlass’ out of my bed – it’s a machete. It has a wooden handle.”
“I went downstairs, kicked open his door and asked him why he wanted to kill me.”
“The blood on my feet and on my sandals is his,” he added. “He asked me why I hacked him. I leaned back to find leverage for the big blows that hit him in the neck.”
According to the New York Post, Roberts’ father called him while he was being attacked.
“My son called and I can hear the screaming,” Nazeem Roberts, 49, told the Post.
“I heard my sister’s voice screaming,” Roberts said. “She yells at her [accused killer] Husband. She said, “Don’t do that! No! Do not do that.”
According to Nazeem, his son and Suhnandan were in an ongoing dispute over ownership of a two-story family home.
Suhnandan threw Nazeem out of the house, but Neraz still lived in the basement.
Suhnandan tried to force him out by flooding the basement with water.
Neraz called the police, who took Suhnandan for questioning.
He then returned home in anger, where he allegedly attacked Neraz around 5 a.m.
“He got my father out and then tried to get my brother out,” the dead Neraz’s sister, Bibi Roberts, 23, told the Post.
“He came out of prison angry and killed my brother,” she said. “It was intentional. Now my daughters keep asking about my brother. His nieces are asking about him.”
Suhnandan was arrested and charged with murder and criminal possession of weapons.
He is being held without bail.
