MADISON, WI. – A doctor and her husband found dead on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus in late March were murdered by their daughter’s boyfriend, authorities said.
Police learned through investigation that the couple was taken from their home Dr. Beth Potter, 52, in her socks and pajamas and her husband, Robin Carre, 57, and were both shot in the back of their heads apparently on March 30, 2020. They were left for dead in an arboretum at the college campus and they were discovered by a jogger at 6:30 a.m. on March 31st. Carre was deceased at the scene, while Potter was rushed to the hospital where she died a short time later, according to the UW-Madison Police press release.
Khari Sanford, 18, was arrested on Friday, April 3, 2020, for the murder of the couple. It was later learned that Sanford was the boyfriend of the couple’s daughter, and the two who were living with them had recently moved out. The criminal complaint stated the two 18-year-olds were asked to move since they were not practicing social-distancing through the COVID-19 pandemic. Potter and Carre rented an apartment for their daughter and her boyfriend so they would not risk the health of Potter, who was at high-risk of getting severely ill if she contracted the virus.
Later on Friday, April 3, 2020, Ali’jah J. Larrue, 18, was taken into custody as an accomplice. It is unknown if the couple’s daughter had anything to do or was aware of the murder at this time. She has not been arrested at the time. Sanford and Larrue are both being held at the Dane County Jail in lieu of $1 million bail.
