Police: Man killed pastor, said he was possessed demons

GERMANTOWN, Md. (AP) — Police say a Pennsylvania man who was hearing voices in his head killed a pastor because he thought the clergyman was possessed by demons.

Authorities say 38-year-old Roland Zinneh went to a home where Connery Dagadu was staying on Tuesday night and asked the pastor to pray with him about the voices he was hearing.

Police say there was a fight and Dagadu was killed. Zinneh was charged with first-degree murder in the asphyxiation of the 57-year-old Dagadu, of Germantown. Police haven't said exactly how Dagadu was killed.

Zinneh is from Darby, Pennsylvania. He was taken to a hospital for treatment, and is now being held at the Montgomery County Detention Center.

Court records do not list an attorney for Zinneh.
