Earlier this week, we reported on the brutal murders of a military couple in Virginia.
Dr. Edward McDaniel Jr., 55, and his nurse wife, Brenda McDaniel, 63, were murdered at point-blank range outside their home.
According to police, the alleged shooters, D’Angelo Strand, 19, and Ronnie Keandre Marshall, 20, are now in custody and have been charged.
Both victims were military and highly decorated during their careers.
Dr. Edward McDaniel was still active, and his wife is a former winner of the Legion of Merit.
So, why did these two individuals lose their lives? It now appears the alleged shooters had gotten into an argument with another family member, more than likely their son.
Fairfax County Police Chief Kevin Davis stated, “Two full colonels were murdered in a residential neighborhood community. And for what? That’s what got us shaking our heads.”
After the murders took place, a massive manhunt was launched to find the killers.
The vehicle reported as belonging to the suspects was found early Thursday, with Strand behind the wheel.
Marshall was found and arrested later that day.
The two men are now facing second-degree murder and using a firearm in the commission of felony charges.
