5-Year Old Escapes Double Murder-Suicide

Benyam Asefa, 40; Barbara Giomarelli, 42; and Samuel Asefa, 3 months, were killed in the shooting in the 6800 block of Woods Court, deputies said. A 5-year-old girl escaped the home unharmed and ran to a neighbor’s house, where a neighbor called 911. Deputies found a handgun at the scene.

Asefa and Giomarelli were scientists. Asefa taught undergraduate biology courses at Hood College as a lecturer from 2005 to 2012, a school spokesman said.

Giomarelli, a native of Italy in the U.S. on a temporary work visa, worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Marine and Environmental Technology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore for three years before quitting in February, a spokesman for that institution said.
