UPDATE: Suspect gets $3M bond, claims no memory of deadly stabbings
The 35-year-old Columbus man police say stabbed his ex-girlfriend and her two daughters -- ages 7 and 10 -- to death got a $3 million bond at Tuesday's court appearance, ABC 6/FOX 28's Lisa Rantala reports.
Wendell Callahan, who was released from the hospital Monday morning, says he does not recall stabbing 32-year-old Erveena Hammonds and her daughters.
The stabbings occurred last Tuesday at The Continent Village apartments located along Atlantic Avenue in north Columbus. Police say a neighbor first called to report a fight at one of the apartments. Then, not long after, another person called 911, panicked, saying kids were hurt and their throats were slit. When officers arrived, they were directed to the apartment in question. There they found the mother and her two young daughters, who'd suffered critical injuries.
Police say Hammonds' current boyfriend, Curtis Miller, tried to stop the violence. Miller was injured but survived.
Callahan faces several charges, including murder.
