NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK: Two 15-year-olds have been arrested for allegedly killing a 20-year-old mother due to mental problems. The two suspects – a girl and a boy – were not named, police believed they had killed victim Nyla Bond in a “revenge murder”. According to The Sun’s report, the woman suspect organized the murder after accusing the 20-year-old boy for sharing sexually explicit photos.
Reports indicate that the girl took Bond to the hallway of her father’s house in the Bronx on November 2, where she was fatally stabbed in the chest by the boy. On the day of the alleged murder, surveillance videos showed the victim and her daughter walking together on the fourth floor of the Bronx apartment. The image also captured two young men waiting in the corridor of the Cennet Mountain residence. One boy hit Bond with a knife while another injured him with a cane-like tool. The crime was allegedly committed after the young Bond believed he had made public photos of him, but his allegations have yet to be confirmed.
“This is a planned revenge murder,” a police source told The Daily News after the female suspect was detained with her 15-year-old male accomplice. Both are charged with murder, manslaughter and possession of weapons. The third suspect has not been arrested yet. NYPD said that Bond, who has an 11-month-old baby, and the young female suspect are also in a romantic relationship. Also, the day after the bloody attack, the girl sent a Facebook message to the victim’s mother, Shadonna Watson, expressing her regret over the loss. He trapped my daughter and later even texted me on Facebook. “I’m so sorry for your loss, Mother Bear,” he said. This girl is a devil. That girl cut off my daughter a few weeks ago. If he did, he probably came back to finish the job, ”said Bond’s devastated mother.
On October 13, police said that he filed a complaint against a former ex by the victim for cutting his face and stabbing him in the back and thigh. However, no investigation was launched, as the victim knew only the attacker’s nickname. Watson thinks the suspect sent condolences so that the police would not suspect him.
According to reports, Bond had mental health problems, and after turning 16, he landed on the psychiatric wards and the street. But he was still remembered as “gentle” and “loving.” A GoFundMe page has also been launched for “care and future”, earning over $ 5000 for Bond’s son. “Nyla was a bright light in the lives of family, friends, and the larger society. She was a beloved girl, sister, friend, and a new mother. Her smile, spirit, bright mind, and infectious smile stays with all of us lucky enough to touch our lives. Nyla was truly one of her kind. He lives with his 11-month-old son, Chance, who turns one year old this Thanksgiving.
