    Man arrested in Vadnais
    Heights triple murder



    MINNEAPOLIS -- A 43-year-old Minnesota man who
    allegedly threatened to kill his wife two years ago
    was in custody Thursday on pending murder
    charges after authorities found his wife and two of
    their children dead in the family's two-bedroom
    apartment.

    Authorities went to the apartment in Vadnais Heights
    late Wednesday after a relative asked them to check
    on the family's welfare. Deputies found the woman
    dead in the bathroom, and the bodies of the 9-year-
    old girl and 12-year-old boy in separate bedrooms,
    Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher said.

    "The scene is horrific because we don't know for
    sure how long they've been dead," Fletcher said.

    The husband was missing, along with the couple's
    4-year-old girl, Fletcher said. A statewide bulletin
    was issued, but the husband had already been
    arrested in southern Minnesota for alleged impaired
    driving.

    Fletcher said the husband confessed and that
    murder charges that could be filed as early as
    Friday. The 4-year-old girl is safe. The names of the
    victims are the wife, 32-year-old Bilha Omare, 12-
    year-old Kinley Ogendi and 9-year-old Ivyn Ogendi.

    "Any time that children, innocent children, are
    victimized it's a tragedy," Fletcher said. "But it really
    is a horrific tragedy when it's at the hands of their
    own parents."

    Authorities were awaiting autopsy results before
    releasing a cause of death. Fletcher said there was
    no evidence of gunshot wounds and that there was
    no extensive bleeding involved in the children's
    deaths.

    "It appears the mother has been dead for a longer
    period of time," Fletcher said, adding that it's
    possible the children were kept in the apartment
    while the mother's body was in the bathroom. The
    woman did not report to work all week, he said, and
    the children did not go to school.

    "Someone called in and indicated they were sick," he
    said of the children. He did not know who made that
    call.


    The husband has a prior arrest for . According to a
    sheriff's incident report, authorities went to the
    third-floor apartment in December 2008, and the
    woman told them the husband pushed her across
    the room, threatened to hit her with a vacuum, and
    threatened to kill her. The woman also said he had
    beaten her unconscious when the couple lived in
    Kenya and that she was afraid for her life, the report
    said.

    Authorities say the crime speaks to a larger issue
    about the local immigrant population and domestic
    abuse.

    "I'm just saying we need to do a better job of
    reaching out to our immigrant communities that are
    here," said Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher.

    Carol Arthur with the Domestic Abuse Project says
    while domestic abuse does not discriminate, women
    in some cultures face even greater obstacles.

    "If you have a culture of community that believes
    men are in charge and men get to control their
    wives and children, sometimes by use of violence,
    then you're more likely to have domestic violence,"
    Arthur said.

    She said it highlights the need for education about
    options -- including information about the crisis
    hotline number: 1.866.223.1111, and other
    resources available.

    Meantime -- in relation to the 2008 incident
    involving this family, the husband denied ever
    abusing his wife, and told the deputy he loved her
    but she was mean to him, the report said. Online

    Poleni sana...yaani si amini.I will blame the economy like everybody else. The men are stressed out. they are not able to take care of their families anymore and suddenly they feel like failures and their egos and sense of selfworth cannot take it. So the solution is to kill themselves and their dependants. It is very sad indeed.

    I asked my self the same question 100X. The puzzling thing is the 4 year old survived. Did you see the pictures of the other kids? it makes it more sad. Depression is bad halafu if it is coupled with hot/short temper this is the result. He could have just killed himself and left the kids and his wife alone.

    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A 43-year-old Minnesota man
    allegedly hit his wife with a golf club and strangled
    her, then killed two of the couple's children and
    locked the bodies in separate rooms.

    Justus Ogendi Kebabe is charged Friday with three
    counts of intentional second-degree murder. His
    wife, Bilah Omare; 12-year-old son, Kinley Ogendi; a
    nd 9-year-old daughter, Ivyn Ogendi, were found
    in their Vadnais Heights apartment late Wednesday.

    The complaint says Kebabe told investigators he
    struck his wife in the head with a golf club and
    strangled her with an electrical wire.

    "She wanted to provide for her family. She wanted to
    be part of it, she wanted to contribute," said Kelly
    Harris, a friend of Bilah Omare. "She was my best
    friend. I don't have any sisters so she became my
    sister, and I'm going to miss her."

    Harris said that Kebabe was scared and worried that
    Omare would succeed in America and leave him.

    "She was a caring and loving person," Harris said.
    "She came to America with no expectations but
    wanting to live the American dream, and she wanted
    to do that with her family."

    The complaint says he also told investigators he
    gave the children cranberry juice spiked with
    Tylenol PM pills. He allegedly said he held the boy's
    head under water in the bathtub until he stopped
    struggling, and smothered the girl with a pillow and
    strangled her.

    He's due in court Friday afternoon.

    What a waste of human life. It seems that there are no guarantees in marriage any more. You could marry a ticking time bomb like that Justus.
    God Forbid.
