Christian Volunteer Charged With Murdering His Wife And Two Daughters, 7 And 8, Days Before Christmas

A Canadian man who studied to become a pastor was arrested on charges of killing his wife and their two daughters, police said.

Clara Soledad Forman and her daughters, Karina Anne Forman and Yesenia Kate Forman, were found dead in their British Columbia home last Tuesday after having apparently been killed on Sunday, CTV Vancouver reported.

Jacob Daniel Forman, 34, who reportedly volunteered at a local church, is facing three charges of second-degree murder for the deaths.

Police have not said how Forman killed his family or why. 

His daughters were only 7 and 8 years old and were homeschooled through the Heritage Christian Online School system, the Kelowna Daily Courier reported.

Family Defends Teen Cheer Camp Volunteer Accused Of Burning, Burying Newborn: She ‘Is A Pleaser’

The family of a teen accused of burning and burying her newborn baby in her parent’s backyard are defending her actions.

Over the summer, 18-year-old Brooke Skylar Richardson was charged with reckless homicide after police in Carlisle, Ohio made the discovery of a dismembered and burned body, Dayton Daily News reports.

Teen Cheer Camp Volunteer Charged With Killing Baby And Burying Body In Parents’ Yard

A teen mom is facing homicide charges after the body of her infant was found in her family’s backyard. According to the Dayton Daily News, Brooke Skylar Richardson was charged Friday with reckless homicide after her 2-month-old was found buried in her parents’ backyard in Carlisle, Ohio. 

Authorities are treating the case as an ongoing investigation. Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell said the charge “is based upon evidence that the infant whose remains were discovered at the defendant’s residence in Carlisle one week ago today was born alive and was not a stillborn baby.” 

In a complaint, Warren County Sheriff’s Deputy Brandi Carter shared a timeline of the incident: “On or about May 7, 2017, one Brooke Richardson … did recklessly cause the death of another, or the unlawful termination of another’s pregnancy.” The body was found July 14, following a tip from a doctor’s office. Authorities are still waiting on a final
