RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC/WNCT) — A man accused of killing a woman and her three small children in Greenville, North Carolina was found near Richmond overnight.
Dibon Toone, 39, was taken into custody just before midnight and charged with murder.
Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman says a concerned family member called the police to check on the four victims.
When authorities performing a welfare check arrived at the West Pointe Townhomes in the West Pointe community, the doors were locked. When they made their way inside they found the woman and children, all under the age of 10, dead. The names and causes of death have not been released.
Toone was not there. He was eventually found in the Richmond area.
Chief Holtzman says investigators believe Toone might have been involved in a relationship with the woman who was killed. Police say he lived at the home where the victims were killed.
Police are expected to release more information Wednesday.
