Relative of slain Ore. family urges forgiveness



MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — The brother of an Oregon woman police believe was killed by her husband along with their four children says he and all of his sister’s family believe they must forgive her husband to be healed themselves.

With a Bible before him, Jesse Adams of Phoenix, Ariz., spoke to reporters Thursday in Medford, where Tabasha Paige-Criado and her four children were found stabbed in their burning house.

Adams says he believes God took his sister and her four children from “a wicked garden” that was her life with husband Jordan Criado, and brought them to a better place.

Jordan Criado remains unresponsive and is breathing through a ventilator in a Medford hospital.

Adams says his sister was seeking a divorce but did not feel threatened by her husband.
