A Pennsylvania man took the ’till death do us part’ of his marriage vows way too seriously after allegedly killing his wife and then himself in a case of murder-suicide.
Cops in Luzerne County, Pa., say 58-year-old Daniel Arangio struck his wife, Valerie, 47, in the head with an axe, killing her, before offing himself with a self-inflicted stab wound, over the weekend.
On Sunday, cops say they discovered the bodies of the couple at their Exeter Township home on Sunday. Valerie’s corpse was found in a bedroom while Daniel’s body was found in a bathroom.
Police believe the deaths occurred sometime on Saturday and Sunday.
Neighbours told news outlet WNEP they were shocked by the news of the apparent murder-suicide. WNEP reported no one knew the Arangios well as they kept to themselves.
“It’s always nice and quiet up here,” said neighbour Ross Webb. No one bugs you. I hear of accidents up here on the news, but not murders or anything like that.”
