“Both of my sons are innocent” – mother of two murder accused

The mother of 31-year-old Samuel Khodra and 20-year-old Daniel Khodra, two of four men charged today, July 16 for the homicide of 35-year-old Yulanda Frederick of La Clery, Castries, claims that her sons are innocent.

The woman did not disclose her name, but told St. Lucia News Online (SNO) that there is no evidence to prove that they are guilty.

However, both brothers, and two other men, were additionally charged for unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

She claims that her sons were in no way involved in the homicide and was likely set up. She said both men are not known to be criminals.

Reports are that the four men were selected during a police identification parade by an eyewitness to the homicide.
‘They can say what they want, but my children innocent,” she added.

She said initially all four of her sons were arrested, including the youngest who is 17 years old. However, only two of them were charged.

“People are saying that it’s them but they have to get evidence. Let God do his work.”

She said the person responsible for the crime is roaming the Leslie Land area and they have not made any attempts to arrest him.

According to the mother, residents know what is going on in Leslie Land and advised the police to do their work more effectively. She said besides those responsible for Fredrick’s death, the area is known to have criminal elements yet the police cannot put their hands on the right criminals.

The mother of four told SNO that she will ensure that justice is served in her sons’ cases and she is praying that the truth comes out so that both of her sons are freed.

  1. Tru dt am sure you can read properly the woman said they arrested all four of her sons and kept two of them meaning for this case it never said all four of her sons have been arrested before learn to read and understand and all you people who are saying parents like to cover up for their child many times when thing like these happen they are quick to say he was a good boy but please don't put all mothers in the same boat. somethimes the police can have the wrong men where is the evidence to prove that they did it have they tested the gun and are they sure that the witness is not trying to cover up for the persons who really did it smh what is this world coming to

  2. Shame of her method of parenting. All four of her children were arrested the youngest 17 years. Wonder how old she is and why would her children be implemented in criminal activities. Don't get me wrong I am not saying they are guilty in this but they have criminal backgrounds I do not feel sorry for these people i born and grew up in Leslie Land. Lived there for 30 years left only 11 years ago because that place was becoming a place i no longer knew and dud not want to raise my daughter there. Although i could have saved money by not paying rent we decided to leave. Many of our former neighbours still lives there and they have never been involved in criminal activities. We raised there when crime was high and marijuana was king when Wally rule. We saw guns as children when police was looking. for Terry James. It is the way you raise your children most times. We need to correct our children and stop blaming others.

  4. I always worry when people make the comment "someone didn't deserve to be shot or killed like an old dog in the street" So how should the person have been killed, like a Saint or some other place or format.

    • It was sad...I self didnt really like Jordan because of his disposition and to be honest I was afraid of Him. But at the same time, he was a human being. He got out of jail was mostly quiet. Saw him around a few times and you wasnt really hearing his name call. And to hear they shot him 15 times and found him in a pool of blood. Thats just too much to handle. Even after he died many people were even afraid to come to his funeral so its like he lived and died and hardly anyone cared. That's sad and tragic. He lived his whole life basically as an outcast. I feel sorry for him I honestly do. Blessed are those who can feel empathy for each other. Jesus loves even the worst sinner. Please my brothers and sisters let us not judge.

  8. Right...but they were still in possession of illegal firearms and ammunition. That speaks volumes about their status as law-abiding citizens. Were you their alibi on the night of the killing? If not, then you are in no position to attest to their innocence. Learn to do the right thing and do not support your children in wrong doing. Who knows they may even turn on you someday.

  9. And even if the woman like many others know who the criminal is? The police goes and arrest. What then? Is it that is what we want done? Just to arrest?

    "True peaceis not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of JUSTICE" (Martin Luther King).

    Martin L King figured the whole thing out for you already. So why are you fools still quarelling with yourselves?

  10. Silent One, you comment made you sound so dam. In your haste to bash the police, you didn't even realise how stupid you sound. First off, the police did not legislate the anti gang law, we are only enforcing it. Secondly, we solve crimes, but people like you and the others who sit on information makes it difficult for us to solve it.

  11. Does this lady want to be a victim? Who would protect her when she squeals to the police? It is a fact that corrupt cops go back and tell criminals who disclosed what. TO everybody who post these nonsense online if they were people who reported crime, all crime in St. Lucia would be solved. Now that this lady finds herself between a rock (like many other lucians) and a hard place you are saying "arrest her", "she knows the killers" Don't you know alot of things that you have not reported? Hypocrites. It is incumbent on the police to use modern day forensic evidence to solve crime.

    All this stems from is having an inadeaquate Justice System and corrupt police force to deal with modern crime. Stop blaming yourself and others and blame who is responsible to fix it cause thats exactly waht they want you to do. FOOLS, DO WHATS RIGHT and stop babbling like some primitive tribe everytime a HUMAN BEING sorry a dog is killed.

    • You should be arrested for your IQ sir!

      Did you even attempt to attend at least one English lesson?

      Please share your source for IQ stats. Going by the likes of Sir Arthur Lewis, JanYves Remy, Javed Samuel, Derek Walcott, Darian Blanchard (RIP), just to name a few, I'd say your stats are a bit fuzzy.
