Estranged wife sustained multiple stab wounds in the incident
The two young daughters of Ukrainian pianist Vadym Kholodenko have been found murdered inside their home in a Fort Worth, Texas, suburb.
Local police say his estranged wife sustained multiple stab wounds in the incident. She is being given a mental health evaluation.
Field Operations Commander, Benbrook Police Department, David Babcock: "Mr. Kholodenko was the person who initiated 9 11 call yesterday morning at nine twenty seven a.m.. He had an appointment with the mother of the children to pick up the children at 9:20 a.m. which was their regular practice, as far as we can tell. Once he arrived there he found the mother in an extreme state of distress and discovered the children in their state. He has been cooperative in this investigation. He's not considered a suspect at this time."
Field Operations Commander, Benbrook Police Department, David Babcock: "We are still looking at all avenues, we're being very careful and very diligent as far as looking at all possible projections on this, on this case. But at this time we are, we don't believe that there's any immediate risk to anybody in the in the neighborhood."
Police say there were no signs of forced entry into the home and they are investigating the case as a double homicide.
