“Police responded to the home near 2200 North and 3200 East around 6:45 p.m. after receiving a call from the Kenneth Warhola. Apparently he had come home and found the door to the children’s room closed. He tried to get in, but couldn’t.
He then called out to his wife, who was inside the room, and she asked him to give her 10 minutes. When he came back, he forced the door open and found his children lying on the bed, covered by a blanket.”
“The children, 7-year-old Jean Warhola and 8-year-old James Warhola, were both dead.”
“There were signs of a struggle in the bedroom,” Moyes said. “The two children have markings on their throat and neck area that would be consistent with a type of strangulation case that we’ve seen.”
Court documents say the children had defensive wound son their arms and legs, and their mother had injuries to her arms and legs that were consistent with a struggle.”
“Police say Sun Cha Warhola recently accused her husband of sexually abusing their children, but Davis County declined to file charges.”
“The Davis County Attorney’s Office has now charged Sun Cha Warhola with two counts of first degree murder. Rawlings says he hasn’t officially made the decision, but based on the facts he’s reviewed he’s leaning toward pursuing the death penalty.”
