Husband in Murder-Suicide Case Was Retired Major, Transition Coordinator

A couple found dead in a suspected murder-suicide on Monday have been identified as a retired U.S. Army major and his Russian-born wife.

Maj. Bradley Kinser, formerly a strategic intelligence research officer for U.S. Army Africa who retired in 2015, was found dead by local authorities in the bathroom of his home near Vicenza.

His wife, Leila, was found dead in the couple’s bedroom, according to Italian media reports, and had apparently been killed either by strangulation or suffocation.
