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 LaRocque’s initials on it and the words “Forever in our hearts” 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. LaRocque’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 state’s attorney “for their continued efforts to find justice for Eric and to hold anyone who caused his death accountable.”

“We 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,” Larocque’s family said. “We thank our family and friends and Eric’s friends for their continued support and ask for your thoughts and prayers as these proceedings continue.”
