A Virginia woman who mourned on Facebook the fatal shooting of her husband has now been indicted on charges of murder in his death, almost a year later.
35-year-old Kimhoang Pham LaRocque posted a picture of a button with 33-year-old Eric LaRocqueâ€™s initials on it and the words â€œForever in our heartsâ€ a few days after he’d been found dead in their home on July 31st.
A grand jury indicted her Monday on charges of second-degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.
Detectives had analyzed a handgun and bullet found in the home, as well as seized computers and cellphones. Medical examiners determined on August 10th that Mr. LaRocqueâ€™s death was homicide.
Mrs. LaRocque was arrested while leaving her job Monday night and held without bond.
His family issued a statement via their attorney, Gary Favro, on Tuesday thanking the police department and the Virginia stateâ€™s attorney â€œfor their continued efforts to find justice for Eric and to hold anyone who caused his death accountable.”
â€œWe find no comfort in these proceedings but they are important to all who knew and loved Eric. Our focus is on Eric’s children, Jackie and Lou,â€ Larocqueâ€™s family said. â€œWe thank our family and friends and Eric’s friends for their continued support and ask for your thoughts and prayers as these proceedings continue.â€
