During the interrogation, Dolphi had admitted that his father and elder brother had accused him of murdering his mother Lilly Goveas on January 20, 2015, when Lilly was found hanging under suspicious circumstances. Both Paul and Stany had also thrown him out of the house in 2014. There were disputes with regard to property as well, said the police commissioner.
