Dad KATRON WALKER was clearly retaliating against his wife for asking for a divorce when he kidnapped their two sons. He stabbed the 4-year-old to death, and tried to kill the 2-year-old. Yet another reminder of why divorce/separation is a very dangerous time for mothers and children leaving abusers. Also reminds us that not all dads seeking "more time" with their children--through abduction or otherwise--have the best motives in mind.
