A 41-year-old man who murdered his wife and two daughters has died after being taken off life-support.

Police say Dragolub Tzokovitch was disconnected after a family friend who was legally authorized to act on his behalf decided to “end his suffering.”

Mila Yoynova, 40, and the couple’s daughters, 10-year-old Alice and 17-year-old Iva, were shot dead last weekend in the family home in Beaconsfield on Montreal’s West Island.

Tzokovitch, a psychologist, was found shot and bleeding from self-inflicted wounds.

The .357 Magnum used to kill the family was legally registered to Tzokovitch, who first arrived in Montreal from Bulgaria in 1990.
