Reports: Pa. man swaps wife, then kills her and her beau (VIDEO)

Lloyd Hill, 42.

A man allegedly swapped his wife with that of a friend he met at church, then savagely killed the two in Bucks County early Friday morning, according to reports.

Lloyd Hill, 41, of Quakertown allegedly killed the two at their Nockamixon Township apartment complex. Police said he waited outside the residence before dawn to ambush boyfriend Frederick Tarantino, 43, as he left for work, beating him to death with an aluminum baseball bat around 5:20 a.m. He then allegedly went inside and stabbed his estranged wife, Stefanie Hill, 36, in the neck and chest.

A neighbor reportedly found Tarantino’s body, dead from blunt force trauma to the head, under a bush a few minutes later and saw the Hills’ daughter running from the Schoolhouse Apartments screaming that her mother had been stabbed. Stefanie Hill was rushed to St. Luke’s Hospital-Fountain Hill, where she died.

Police reportedly recovered a kitchen knife covered in blood and hair from the apartment’s bedroom area. An affidavit said that the Hills’ daughter also allegedly saw her father fleeing the scene, at which point he told her “I killed Fred,” according to reports. She then saw her bloodied mother, who told her to call police, then staggered out of the bedroom and collapsed in the living room.

Lloyd Hill was reportedly found by State Troopers driving in the neighborhood later Friday morning with blood on his clothes, hands and in the car. He was arrested without incident and is charged with two counts of homicide. He was sent to Bucks County Prison without bail. His preliminary hearing will be held Feb. 6.

Hill was living with Tarantino’s wife in a separate location, Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler said, according to reports. The couple had been friends, but decided to switch spouses, reportedly three years ago after they met at church. Police reportedly said that Lloyd Hill had sent Stefanie Hill a text message the week before threatening to kill her and that Stefanie Hill and Tarantino had been trying to keep their address a secret from the man.
