David Stokes, 43, a British lottery winner who won over $50,000, committed suicide after murdering his two sons and stabbing his wife in the back after she confronted him about blowing his winnings on prostitutes, according to the New York Post.
“He looked evil,” his wife stated to police. “I thought at that moment I was going to die,” she continued. His wife then went on to explain how Stokes blamed their problems on her, when if fact he was the one sleeping with prostitutes. When she asked Stokes where the children were, he told her they were “with someone else” and then he hit her with a rolling pin and attempted to smother her with a pillow.
When Stokes saw that he was not harming his wife, he then stabbed her in the back prior to her escaping to the nearest police station. Upon her return, she saw that he killed their two children—both of whom were holding hands in bed under the covers. Stokes was found by police with a knife to his chest.
