A Florissant man has been charged with murder after allegedly strangling his wife early Thursday morning.

Peter Chafin, 42, called police at about 7 a.m. Thursday, and when Florissant police arrived, they found his wife, Kiera Chafin, 22, strangled to death in their home in the first block of Apache Court.

Police arrested Peter Chafin at the scene, and he is being held on a charge of second-degree murder with bail set at $300,000.

The couple's children, a 2-year-old boy and an infant, were in the home at the time. They were unharmed and are now in the custody of the Division of Family Services.

The couple had a history of domestic violence, said Florissant Police Chief Tim Lowery. He said Kiera Chafin had left the house for about 24 hours after an argument and was apparently killed after returning to the home at about 1:30 a.m.

This was not caused by the difference in age.

This was not caused by the swirl.

This was caused by a deranged and violent man.

Some of y'all stay blaming things that aren't the problem to fit your own agendas and views. But we all know there are deranged and violent men in all types of relationships just waiting to pop off.

This is a tragedy. This thread isn't as long as the men who hit women who hit them first because there's nothing to discuss. There's no difference of opinion. It's horrible. She didn't deserve it. We all know that. All we can say is RIP and hope that that man gets what he deserves.

Yup we had a dude here last month murder his wife, child and attorney leaving three other minors kids with a dead mother and a jail bird daddy

Month before that dude killed his family and himself.

Abusers are plentiful in all ethnicities, races, religions, age groups, couplings. Go through your city's daily mugshot photos and 1/3 of the people on there are locked up for CDV and they'll go right back home to the person they abused.

Threads with men hitting women after the women hit first are always very long here. It's a divisive topic and people take very strong positions on either side.

But since you opened the door, I'll walk through it. How are swirlers viewed?
It reminds me of the Debarge family. That man was yt, an a cop and was abusive to his wife and kids. She couldn't go to anybody for help. We don't hear too much about yt men being abusive to their black women mates.

I'm wondering what kind of janky arsed newspaper this is that you have to answer Google survey questions before you can read the article. (Google doin' what it do) No thanks!

Lol St. Louis Post Dispatch is our primary newspaper here. Newspapers are looking for funding from any place possible; like annoying Google ads and surveys.

The link still works for me. But thanks yall for posting the story and the pics : )

Either A Blessing Or A Lesson.
Crappy UPDATE - They didn't mention in the first article that he killed a white man and hid the body about two months before he killed his black wife. The link to the story has pictures of the victims. They were just too big to post here.

Florissant man charged in two killings deemed mentally unfit for trial

ST. LOUIS • A man from Florissant who called police in 2016 to say that he had strangled his wife and then showed detectives where he had hidden a shotgun used in another killing has been deemed mentally unfit for trial, court records say.

Peter Chafin, 43, who is charged in two separate murder cases, has been transferred to the Fulton State Hospital and will be re-evaluated after six months, according to a court order by St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison.

On Dec. 15, 2016, Chafin called Florissant police to his home, where they found his wife, Kiera Chafin, 22, dead, police said. She had been strangled.

While confessing to his wife’s murder, police said, Chafin also told police that he had shot Dominic Smith multiple times with a shotgun on Sept. 1, 2015, in the 4200 block of Delor Street and dumped the body in the river near the intersection of Elwood Street and South Broadway, court documents say.

Smith’s body was found two weeks later snagged on a barge in the river. Police released pictures of his tattoos to help identify him. Crime lab specialists later linked the blood found in the backyard to Smith, but the case went cold.

Chafin told police he encased the shotgun in cement, authorities said. He took detectives to the intersection of South Broadway and Nagle Avenue and pointed to a cement block. Police broke the block apart and found a shotgun inside.
