Cops: Man Killed Family Member in Burlington Cleaver Attack

A Burlington, Vt., man was in custody Thursday after allegedly killing his wife with a meat cleaver and critically injuring his mother-in-law, police said.

City police had not released the names of the victims or the suspect by early Thursday evening, but authorities said the incident unfolded earlier in the day at 72 Hyde the Old North End.

An armed bystander held Gurung until officers arrived and arrested him.

Police identified his slain wife as 32-year-old Yogeswari Khadka.

Gurung was voluntarily admitted to the UVM Medical Center for a mental health evaluation after calling the police with mental health concerns, according to an October 12 Burlington Free Press article. The motive in what police declared a homicide remains under investigation.
