Bond set at $3 million for suspect accused of killing mom and 2 daughters

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH)– The man accused of murdering two young girls and their mother, told officers he didn’t remember it happening.

A Franklin County judge said because of Wendell Callahan’s lengthy criminal history and the severity of the crime, Callahan was issued a $3 million bond.

According to Columbus police, Callahan fatally stabbed 32-year-old Erveena Hammonds, 10-year-old Anaesia Green, and 7-year-old Breya Hammonds at an apartment on Atlantic Avenue.

Investigators told NBC4 the suspect is the ex-boyfriend of the woman who was killed. They said he killed all three people and then was surprised when the woman’s current boyfriend walked in the residence. The two men then began to fight.

Both men were injured and taken to an area hospital. Police say the boyfriend was treated and released.

Callahan was also ordered to stay away from the victims’ family. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
