Widow of Bowie man killed by son speaks out

The widow of a Bowie man killed by his own son Friday tells Fox 5 that her late husband lived the American dream after moving here from Sierra Leone.

The 17-year-old now faces charges of first and second-degree murder.

“I’m still processing, it’s not easy. To lose two lives,” Patricia Koroma said Sunday at her home. “That’s all I have to say … he’s not here, he’s going to prison, so …”

The elder Koroma leaves behind three children. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help the family pay for funeral expenses.

“It’s just too painful, the way he died. He didn’t deserve to die that way,” Patricia Koroma says. “He was a good man. Very religious, very prayerful. He didn’t deserve to die that way.”
