Chesterfield County police have obtained warrants for a Dinwiddie County man in Monday’s double slaying of a Chesterfield County woman and her adult daughter in Ettrick.

Herbert C. Bland Jr of the 20000 block of Harris Drive is wanted on two charges of first-degree murder and felonious use of a firearm in the killings of Barbara Fassett, 65, and her daughter, Elizabeth Fassett, 42.

Police said Bland is Elizabeth Fassett’s ex-boyfriend.

Barbara Fassett retired in March from the Chesterfield County government, where she was honored for her years of service as a planner in the planning department. She worked 23 years in the county, helping develop plans for the Ettrick, Jefferson Davis and Eastern Midlothian areas, among others, according to a commending resolution prepared for her retirement.

Authorities found the two womens’ bodies after a UPS driver delivering a package to their home about 5:45 p.m. Monday discovered a body just inside the shattered front door.

Bland was wounded in a shooting earlier Monday in an incident that left his 62-year-old father dead. Dinwiddie authorities responded to the family’s residence about 1 p.m. for a report of a dispute between a father and son.

They found Herbert C. Bland Jr. coming out of the house with an apparent gunshot wound and his father, Herbert C. Bland Sr., dead inside.

Bland is being treated at VCU Medical Center.
