(NY DAILY NEWS) – A man who studied to become a pastor has been accused of killing his wife and their two young daughters.
Jacob Daniel Forman, 34, is facing three second-degree murder charges after his wife, Clara Forman, and daughters Karina and Yesenia, were found dead in their Kelowna home in southwest Canada, CTV Vancouver reported.
While court documents indicate the three victims were killed on Sunday, their bodies were not found until police were called the home two days later, CTV reported.
The details of their deaths, along with a motive for the killings, have not been released.
Forman, who worked at a plumbing company, was taken into custody and showed no emotion when he made his first court appearance on Thursday.
The suspect was training to become a pastor in Mexico when he met his wife more than a decade ago, CTV reported.
They married after just four months of dating, according to Clara Forman, who detailed her whirlwind relationship in a 2015 Facebook post celebrating their 10th anniversary.
The two girls, who were 7 and 8 years old, were home-schooled through the Heritage Christian Online School, according to the Kelowna Daily Courier.
Jacob Forman is scheduled to appear back in court in January. His lawyer said it is unclear how he will respond to the charges.
