Man accused of killing mother, 3 children in North Carolina

GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A man accused of killing a North Carolina mother and her three children is being held on a murder charge after fleeing to Virginia.

Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman said at a news conference Wednesday that 39-year-old Dibon Jab Toone has been charged with killing the woman, and he will be charged with the children’s deaths as well.

Holtzman said the woman and the three children, ages 6, 7 and 11, were found dead on Tuesday night. He didn’t say how the victims were killed.

Toone was arrested hours later in Richmond, Virginia.

Holtzman said Toone was the father of the two younger children and appears to have been living at the home where the bodies were found.
