A Florida father shot his wife and mother-in-law Saturday morning before turning the gun on himself, Broward County sheriff’s deputies say, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
Deputies were called to a house in Tamarac at about 7:15 a.m. and helped three children — ages 4, 8, and 11, escape through a bedroom window, as CrimeOnline previously reported.
When a SWAT team entered the house, they found 39-year-old Clody Sylverne and his 38-year-old wife dead and his wife’s 65-year-old mother badly wounded, the Sun-Sentinel said..
The mother-in-law was airlifted to North Broward Health, where she died from her injuries.
A friend of Sylverne’s, Jimmy Christophonte, told Local 10 that his wife’s name was Benouchka.
“I can’t believe it. I am so heartbroken,” Christophonte said.
The three children are currently in the custody of victims’ advocates, the station said.
