Yet another case of psychotropic drugs and a homicide!
NEW YORK --
Police have accused a Bronx man of killing a woman and her 6-year-old daughter.
Police discovered the bodies of 25-year-old Yolande Beckford and daughter Monique in their Bronx apartment.
Earlier reports indicated the accused man was the woman's boyfriend, but Ryan Bryan, a relative of both the suspect and victims, has told NewsChannel 4 that the suspect was actually her cousin.
Police said the suspect, Camor Harding, 20, is charged with two counts of murder and criminal possession of a weapon.
Bryan said Harding visited Beckford’s apartment regularly since he moved to East 232nd Street several months ago and would even baby-sit Monique, which led to a close relationship.
Police were called after the dead woman’s mother hadn't heard from her daughter in a couple of days. Police were able to get inside the locked apartment through a fire escape window.
Bryan said Harding took medication to fight psychiatric problems he suffered.
Police sources said there were puncture wounds to their bodies.
