Man hacked to death by uncle with machete in NYC, cops say

Per: NYP – A Queens man was hacked to death by his machete-wielding uncle in an ongoing feud over the family’s house, cops and neighbors told The Post on Sunday. 

Suspect Mahadeo Suhnandan, 50, is now awaiting arraignment for allegedly killing his 29-year-old nephew, Neraz Roberts, inside the home.

Roberts was pronounced dead at 88-27 187 Place in Jamaica around 5 a.m. with gashes to his back and hand, cops said.

Neighbor Ryan Basdeo, 24, said problems in the family began about 2 1/2 years ago when the owner of the house died, leaving her son, her daughter and Suhnandan, the daughter’s husband, to sort out the ownership of the two-story brick home, Badeo said. 

Both the son and his family, including his own offspring Roberts, and the daughter and her husband lived at the property.
