BRIGHAM CITY — A father and son killed in a triple homicide last week in Idaho are former Brigham City residents, say several people who knew the pair.
Brent L. “Bird Dog” Christensen, 61, his son Trent Jon Christensen, 32, and Yavette Chivon Carter, 27, were found shot to death Friday in a home near Holbrook, just north of the Utah border, that also contained a marijuana grow and pit bull-breeding operation.
Carter was Trent Christensen’s girlfriend.
Authorities have said Carter’s 2-month-old daughter was found under her arm and that she was apparently protecting the infant when she died. In addition, her 2-year-old daughter was also found unharmed. Both children have been turned over to one of the grandmothers.
