Police: Man denies killing wife, her 3 kids in Va.

Aug 21, 2011 4:45:00 PM - thestate.com
A Virginia man has denied any involvement in the slayings of his wife and her three children, whose bodies were found in their burned apartment, police said Sunday.

John Moses Ragin, 36, professed his innocence during interviews with Newport News police detectives who traveled to South Carolina, where he is being held, department spokesman Harold O. Eley said.

"Mr. Ragin denies any involvement whatsoever in their deaths," Eley said.

Newport News police want Ragin returned to Virginia to face nine charges, including four counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Crystal Ragin and her children, Sierra, 15, Rasheed, 10, and Lakwan, 6.

All four were found in their Newport News apartment on Friday. Investigators found evidence of knife wounds and "exposure to fire," police said.
