Aita Gurung, 34, returned home Thursday afternoon after voluntarily admitting himself to a hospital for a mental-health evaluation, the Burlington Free Press reported.

Khadka died from severe head injuries, including wounds to her skull, arms and hands.

The couple's child, 8, was at school at the time and was unharmed.

He's being held on suspicion of second-degree murder and attempted murder at the Chittenden County Jail. It started around 2:30 p.m.in the family's kitchen and the violence soon spilled out into the street, where neighbors attempted to intervene.

Chief Brandon del Pozo said the family lived together in the Hyde Street home.

"A team of officers approached Gurung and used the cover of a ballistic shield to take him into custody", police said.

"I heard a blood curdling scream that you just can't make up", Sam Rollo, who was working nearby, told WCAX. Gurung also attacked his mother-in-law, who is in critical condition at the UVM Medical Center, the Burlington police stated on Twitter.

On Saturday the suspect had called police, seeking out help "for mental health issues and concerns about his deteriorating relationship with his wife", del Pozo said. He was released from the hospital yesterday when he requested to be discharged, the article stated.

It is unclear whether he has retained an attorney.

The child is now of the care of the grandfather, say authorities.
