ALEXANDRIA, Va. (ABC 4 News) - A former Utah man was killed in Virginia Saturday over an apparent love dispute with a member of his fiances' LDS ward. Todd Rogers, 31, grew up in Salt Lake City.
Fairfax County police arrested 41-year-old John P. Bloxham and charged him with Roger's murder.
According to an article in The Salt Lake Tribune, Roger's father, David Rogers, said his son had planned to announce his engagement to his girlfriend, Carrie Johanson, on Sunday. Bloxham and Rogers were driving home together Saturday night from Johanson's house.
The Tribune article says Bloxham and Johanson are co-workers at the U.S. Census Bureau, and according to David Rogers, Bloxham is an Elders Quorum counselor at her ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Fairfax County police say Bloxham and Rogers began arguing in the car when Bloxham pulled a hand gun and shot Rogers several times. Police say Bloxham fled the scene, allowing Rogers' car to crash into a parked car.
Police found Rogers as they responded to a hit-and-run call. Rogers was transported to Inova Fairfax Hospital where he later died.
