A 44-year-old Haitian immigrant killed his wife and sister-in-law before turning the gun on himself in Delray Beach last week.
Julien Rosemberg, 44, killed his 43-year-old wife Pierrena Rosemberg and her sister with a semi-automatic handgun inside their small home before walking out to the backyard and using the weapon on himself, according to police.
The couple’s two boys and girl and the sister’s daughter ran past the bodies as they fled the house, said Dani Moschella, spokeswoman for the Delray Beach Police Department. The sister was identified as Lourdine Cazeau, 41.
The children, who range in age from 5 to 14, were not injured and are staying with relatives, Moschella said.
Relatives claimed that that Julien Rosemberg had repeatedly threatened to kill his wife in recent years, before carrying through on the threat on March 25th.
Pierrena Rosemberg reportedly brought Julien Rosemberg five years ago to the U.S. and also recently brought her sister from Haiti to live with her.
