A Ghanaian footballer in Italy, Solomon Nyantakyi, has been arrested by authorities on suspicion of killing his mum and sister.

His mother, 45 year old Patience Nfum, and his 11 year old sister, Magdalene Nyantakyi, were found stabbed to death in their home Tuesday.
The two were stabbed brutally to death in their house in Via San Leonardo, which is a multicultural neighbourhood on the outskirts of Parma where many Ghanaians in Italy stay.
