Another "caretaker" dad story--but this time from Guyana. While Mom is working (and living?) in another town, dad JOHN BLANCHARD hacks two of the kids to death (another one is still hospitalized). Sounds like Mom was afraid to come home. I'm guessing domestic violence based on the subsequent events. So Daddy decided to control/punish Mom by stripping her of her kids forever.
Daddy's story is such bullsh** that it scarcely deserves telling. Mom gave him the "green light" to kill her children? Really? And Daddy has no will of his own? That is totally ridiculous.
Far more likely: Daddy just occupying his own self-serving fantasy world. A world in which he was justified in murdering these poor children because the EVIL MOTHER wished or commanded it (by rejecting Daddy). Or that he's just a clever tale spinner (i.e. manipulative sociopath), and thinks that this effort to muddy the waters will somehow work out for him.

As a seven-year old child on Wednesday remained hooked up on life-support after she and her two siblings were brutally chopped by their father, police were trying to contact their mother who left to work in Mahdia.
Dead are nine-year old Bolica Blanchard and five year old Daniel Blanchard. Their father, John Blanchard, was arrested after he called relatives and told them that he had hacked his children. Still in the Intensive Care Unit of the Georgetown Public Hospital is Joy Blanchard.
The man, a boiled-corn vendor, told investigators that his wife left their home at Dr. Charles New Housing Scheme, Soesdyke to work in Mahdia.
Police Chief of Criminal Investigations, Assistant Commissioner, Seelall Persaud said the man has so far told investigators that he had made a few calls to her but she refused to return home.
John Blanchard recounted to investigators that when he told his wife that he would kill the children, she gave him the green-light to do so, Persaud told Demerara Waves Online News ( www.demwaves.com )
Crime scene detectives recovered two knives from the scene and arrested Blanchard who could be charged by Friday after autopsies are conducted.
The Police Chief of Criminal Investigations say they want to contact the wife, Onicka Blanchard, to ascertain to cross-reference his version of the disagreement, the motives and whether they had experienced economic difficulties.
