A surviving daughter of the family who were murdered at their $2million Washington D.C. mansion has posted touching tributes to her parents – while it’s revealed their alleged killer’s trial has been delayed until December.
Katerina Savopoulos, 19, was not at home when her father Savas, 46, mother Amy,47, brother Philip, 10, and housekeeper Veralicia Figueroa, 57, died after Daron Wint allegedly held them captive as part of a ransom plot.
The 34 year old, who is in custody, is accused of stabbing and strangling them to death before setting their house on fire.
As prosecutors prepare for the murder trial, the grieving teenager uploaded pictures of her brother, mother and father to Facebook along with heartfelt messages.
Alongside a picture of Philip, she wrote: ‘Would do anything to see that smile again. Love and miss you.’
On the same day she posted a picture of her being held in her father’s arms as a youngster.
With it she wrote the message: ‘You will always be my hero and my role model and I will love you and miss you so much. Thank you for teaching me courage, loyalty and how to believe in myself. Love you to the moon and back Baba.
In May, she shared an image of her as a child with her mother and revealed one of her favorite sayings was: ‘In a while crocodile’.
She then wrote: ‘Thank you for being the best mom I could have ever asked for. I love you mommy and will miss you everyday.’
Prosecutors say Wint held the family captive inside their home and demanded $40,000 he allegedly beat and stabbed the family to death before setting the house on fire.
He was arrested in Washington D.C. a week after the slayings after a nationwide manhunt which led police to his girlfriend’s apartment in Brooklyn, New York, and back to the capital.
