An immigrant mother in the city of Clarkston, Georgia has murdered the teen who got her daughter pregnant. Police say Paw Law blamed Nyatole Eh,17, for her teen daughter’s pregnancy. Eh had intentions of marrying his teen love but all of that came to an end this past Sunday.

During breakfast, a family member identified as Ta Oel was in the bathroom and heard two shots ring out. When Oel heard the gunshots, the relative ran into the room and discovered that Eh was bleeding from a gunshot wound to the head and to his hand. The family member stated to police that the mother then fired several more rounds before the gun was wrestled away. She was trying to turn it on herself to commit suicide. Clarkston Police Detective Jason Elliot told local Channel 2 News that “It appears they were in the kitchen preparing breakfast… There was no type of argument or even altercation. It’s looking like mom just walked up behind the victim and shot him.”

When police arrived at the scene, they discovered the murder weapon on the floor above the victim’s head and two family members leaning over his body trying to render aid. Eh was transported to Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital where he died from his injuries. Paw Law was arrested Monday and charged with the murder of her would be son-in-law. A family member said of the shooting, “It was surprising. I never thought something like this was going to happen. He’s a very good, innocent guy.”

Law is being held in the DeKalb County Jail on a charge of murder.
