GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro police are investigating a double murder after a man allegedly killed his wife and his sister following a domestic dispute.
On Thursday, police received a missing persons report that stated Yan Wu, 41, had not shown up at work “for several days,” police said. Detectives investigated the case on Thursday and were unable to locate Wu or her husband, Guanghui Lei, 45, who both live at 400 Coronado Drive.
On Thursday evening, police were notified that Lei had been located in Germantown, Tenn. and was in custody.
After police talked to authorities in Germantown, officers went to the couple’s Coronado Drive home and found Wu and her sister, 38-year-old Bi Fang Liu, who were both dead from gunshot wounds.
Lei has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and is being held in Germantown, Tennessee pending extradition back to North Carolina.
Police said the murders appear “domestic related” and said the investigation is ongoing.
Two children also lived at the couple’s home. The children were found unharmed in Germantown.
A UNC-Greensboro spokeswoman says Wu was the university’s Assistant Director in the Division of Continual Learning. She had been a university employee for 10 years and obtained her master’s degree from the Bryan School of Business.
The spokeswoman said Lei also graduated from UNCG.
