Man grins upon his arrest for killing family



Orlando "Foo" Guarino stopped and smiled for a photo tonight after the 38-year-old man was arrested on charges he killed his wife and their two young children at his home in Marianna, Pa.

Guarino’s estranged wife, Ashley Guarino, 22, and the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Dreux, and 11-month-old son, Orlando Jr., were found dead yesterday in their father’s home at 405 Third St. It appeared that all three had died of asphyxiation, according to the Observer-Reporter in Washington, Pa., after he threatened to kill them during a marital separation.

I paused, also, and wondered why he had any reason to be happy. The arresting state police trooper, Thomas Kress, appeared to be similarly perplexed.

That's a shocking photo. You don't expect someone accused of killing his wife and kids to be grinning like he was just exonerated...

That's pretty disturbing. He was smiling in the P-G's photos, too.

Are people that starved for attention? Or is there some deeper problem going on?

Well I would HOPE there is some deeper major disturbance going on.
Anyway his eyes are not smiling.
