A board member of the rural Maryland religious retreat where a man was killed in a double stabbing on Sunday says operators are “heartbroken” over the incident.

Peter Chang of Rockville said Tuesday he’d like the board of Anna Prayer Counseling Inc. to become more cautious about welcoming people with possible mental health issues to the center near Urbana, about 40 miles from Washington. But he says that as a Christian counseling center, “that’s what we’re here for.”

Sixty-two-year-old Chung Hwan Park of South Korea was killed Sunday evening. His 57-year-old wife is recovering from stab wounds.

Authorities have charged a homeless man, 30-year-old Song Su Kim, with first-degree murder in the attack. Police say Kim was dropped off at the center by his mother five days earlier.
