A judge has greenlit murder charges for a pair of teens suspected in the double homicide of a Wisconsin doctor and her husband.
As ABC News report, a Wisconsin judge has determined there is enough evidence to proceed with charges against Khari Sanford and Ali’Jah Larrue, both 18, for the shooting deaths of Dr. Beth Potter and her husband Robert Carre, who were found with gunshot wounds to the head in an arboretum at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on March 31. Carre was pronounced dead at the scene, and Potter survived for about an hour at a hospital before she too died.
According to the report, Potter did not implicate anyone in the execution-style shooting, but Sanford reportedy made some type of self-incriminating statement upon questioning. The evidence appears to show that Sanford shot the couple, and that Larrue, whose cell phone was traced to the area the night before the bodies were found, was an accomplice.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Sanford was dating the couple’s daughter, and the younger pair had been living in their home until Potter and her husband arranged for them to move into a rental home, Potter reportedly took medication that placed her at risk for COVID-19. According to a criminal complaint, she told a friend on the phone that her daughter and Sanford had not practiced social distancing, and that she and her daughter had argued about the situation.
As Nancy Grace said on Daily Mail TV, “Coronavirus did not pull the trigger.” In the below segment, Nancy shares her theory on the brutal double murder.
The daughter has not been charged with any crime, but a criminal complaint appears to show that she may have lied to police, claiming that she and Sanford were both at their rental the entire night before the bodies were found in the early morning hours of March 31.
At a court appearance conducted by video, Larrue’s lawyer reportedly questioned the charges against his client and said there was no evidence Larrue had any kind of relatioship with the murdered couple.
“The key part to this case is they are relying on the GPS data that doesn’t put him [Larrue] in the crime scene, it just puts him the approximate area,” the attorney said, according to ABC News.
“It’s logic that Larrue was hiding or trying not to be involved or telling Sanford to stop what he was doing.”
According to the report, Sanford implicated Larrue as an accomplice. Both defendants are expected to plead not guilty.
