retired army officer charged with killing wife, daughter

Some gruesome news out of Virginia about a brutal double murder... Last week in Fairfax County, 49-year-old Kenston Yi was charged in the murder of his wife, who was beaten to death, and 15-year-old daughter, who was asphyxiated: Fairfax's Kenston Yi, retired Army officer, charged in wife, daughter's deaths.
About 8 a.m. Monday, Yi walked into the emergency room at DeWitt Army Community Hospital on the Fort Belvoir Army base and "told a doctor that he had taken Ambien and he wanted to hurt himself," according to the affidavit written by Fairfax homicide Detective Robert A. Bond.

Yi then asked to speak to a pastor, Bond wrote. Yi "advised the pastor that he strangled his wife and daughter," according to the affidavit.

Police went to the Lorton apartment and found the front door closed but unlocked. Inside, they found the bodies of Hyon and Joy Yi. "The bodies appeared to have blunt force trauma to them," Bond wrote.
Yi reportedly didn't attend his arraignment because he expressed suicidal thoughts and was moved to a hospital. Police are describing the murders as "an apparent domestic incident." More here: Lorton Mom, Daughter Mourned.
