RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC/WNCT) — A man accused of killing a woman and her three small children in North Carolina was found near Richmond overnight.
Dibon Toone, 39, was taken into custody just before midnight and charged with murder.
Greenville Police Chief Mark Holtzman says a concerned family member called the police to check on the four victims.
When officers arrived at the townhome in the West Pointe community, the doors were locked. When they made their way inside they found the woman and children dead.
Toone was not there.
He was eventually found in the Richmond area.
Officers were called to the 1400 block of Hopkins Road in Richmond just after 11:30 p.m. Tuesday night for a report of a stolen car that was possibly involved in the Greensville investigation.
Detectives, officers, along with members of US Marshals Regional Fugitive Taskforce then arrested Toone in the parking lot of Hopkins Store.
He was then transported to Richmond Regional Detention Center and has an extradition hearing set for tomorrow.
Chief Holtzman says investigators believe Toone might have been involved in a relationship with the woman who was killed and stayed at that townhome where the family was found.
8News did some digging and learned Toone at one point lived in Richmond and has a record in Richmond pleading guilty back in 2006 to accessory after the fact to a robbery.
