DescriptionHomicide investigators suspect a nephew of U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Montana, may have been killed with an ax in his home near Spangle as his young daughter was told to stay in a bedroom.

Bob Tester’s 8-year-old daughter told Spokane County sheriff’s deputies she was in bed with her father when a man entered the home and awakened them, wielding what she described as “a sword and a knife,” according to court documents.

“The man told her to stay in bed because he was going to kill her dad,” court documents state.

The girl likely didn’t witness the killing, but court documents state she called her grandmother to report his death.

Deputies found Tester’s body in “a large pool of blood” on the living room floor. A wood-splitting ax lay nearby, stained with blood. And deputies found “blood on the walls and floor throughout the residence,” court documents state.
