Pictures: Houston Based Nigerian doctor, Ben Okigbo, kills nurse wife and tried to strangle his 2 sons before hanging himself

Police in Houston Texas at the weekend provided fresh insight into the death of Nigerian couple, Dr. Benjamin Okigbo and his wife, Theresa who was a nurse.

The police said there was no shooting incident: Benjamin strangled his wife.

Police said on Saturday that their investigation revealed that Benjamin Okigbo strangled Theresa Okigbo to death.

He then attempted to kill both of his 21-year-old sons by strangling them before he eventually killed himself by hanging.

Both of the sons survived the attack with injuries that are not life-threatening, according to a new report.

Theresa Okigbo: strangled by her husband

On Friday morning, a daughter, who doesn’t live at the home, went there after she became concerned. She wasn’t injured.

Someone in the house called 9-1-1 Friday morning around 10 a.m. from the home in the 1500 block of Brookstone Lane.

When officers arrived, they found the couple’s bodies inside. They were both in their 50s.

The tragic couple had lived in the Greatwood home for about 20 years.

A neighbour said she spoke to the wife a few days ago and nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

The investigation remains ongoing.
