Svetlana Hanson, 25
Charles Hanson, 42
August 20, 2010
Svetlana's and Charles’ murder has left 1 child without their parents in their life and 2 step-children without their Step-Mother in their lives
Police officers found Svetlana and Charles dead of gunshot wounds in their home in Eagan. Svetlana’s ex-husband Robin Bhattacharyya shot at the couple through the front window of their home and then killed himself in their yard.
Svetlana’s divorce from Bhattacharyya became final in 2009, but they had been separated since July 2008.
Three children (Svetlana’s two stepchildren and her nine-month old child) were sleeping in the home at the time while Svetlana’s father was with them in the living room when they were killed. Neither he nor the children were hurt.
