Upper Uwchlan, PA: UPDATE: Husband charged with stabbing wife at Chesco Wawa (video)

UPPER UWCHLAN - A man allegedly stabbed his wife to death at about 11 p.m. Sunday in the parking lot of the Wawa on Ticonderoga Boulevard, according to a press release from the Chester County District Attorney.

James Hvizda was arrested after walking into the Upper Uwchlan Police Department to report that he had just killed his estranged wife, Kimberly, according to the release.

“This was a cold-blooded, preplanned killing,” Chester County District Attorney Tom Hogan said. “The defendant executed his wife, the mother of his four children, with casual efficiency. Those children are now left without a mother and with a father charged with murder.” James Hvizda met his wife at the Wawa as she was beginning her shift there, according to the release. They had a conversation and walked to his wife’s van, at which point he drew a knife and stabbed her multiple times, the DA said. Kimberly Hvizda was pronounced dead at the scene.

James Hvizda is in custody awaiting arraignment on first-degree murder and related charges. Assisting Upper Uwchlan Police at the scene were Uwchlan, West Pikeland, West Whiteland, and West Vincent police departments as well as Uwchlan Ambulance, Lionville Fire Company, Chester County Detectives, and the Chester County Coroner’s office.
