Young Pastor Has Been Charged With the Murders of His Wife and Two Daughters

A 34-year-old aspiring pastor in Canada has been charged with the murders of his wife and two young daughters who were found dead in their British Columbia home last Tuesday.

Jacob Forman, a plumber who was studying to be a pastor, has been charged by authorities with three counts of second-degree murder after he was accused of ending the lives of his 33-year-old, Mexican-born wife, Clara Soledad Forman, and their 7 and 8-year-old daughters, Karina Forman and Yesenia Forman, according to CTV Vancouver.

It remains unclear as to how the three were killed and what motive there was for their murders.

The news outlet reports that Forman, who lives in the town of Kelowna, appeared in court last Thursday.

“Obviously he’s facing the worst possible thing he could be facing at this point in time,” Forman’s defense attorney Glenn Verdurmen told CTV Vancouver. “I can’t really speak for him, but he’s obviously holding up in court today, and I’m able to take instructions from him.”

Global News reports that during the court hearing last week, Forman showed no emotion and was ordered to be held in custody and to be denied contact with 13 select people. Forman will return to court on Jan. 19 by video link.
