This is a really sad story. I knew both of them when they lived in Shrewsbury, MA.
Very loving couple with three very nice kids. The guy was especially a true gentleman.
May God bless all of them.

It's a shock to see that such a nice man could be capable of such a horrific act. There must be an explanation. Although there is no excuse that would justify his killing I just hope that the children will be able to move on. I hope they find a nice loving home. Their parents devoted so much time to polishing each kids talent and now their future lies in the hands of relatives or whoever takes on their responsibility. Rest in peace Jalina, you will remain in our prayers along with your beautiful children

You will be missed Jalina. I hope your children grow up to remember you as the strong, beautiful, loving and devoted mother that you were. You deserved better.
Children if/when you read this know that life is not always fair but you are strong enough to have faced this horrible reality. You are each so talented so pursue your dreams and know in your angelic hearts that your mother is so proud of you and is looking down upon you with a smile.

How could this be a "Shock"? This woman was a member of a South Asian Community Outreach for Abused Women, while living in Boston! You tell me you didn't see the signs or just didn't want to?

It is very curious that her Facebook page alludes to loneliness and despair - AND she was a member of SAHELI but these so called "Family Friends" didn't want to get involved!

RIP Jalina! You are in a better place.

You are right just because you know the family doesn't mean you know everything about them. Human beings are very good actor. I know them too. I never expected this will happened. I feel really bad for the children I can't stop crying thinking about them. I like to know what happened to the children. I have three kids same age as them. God bless them. Jalina you are in my prayer.
