Police: Woman arrested over husband's murder appeared on ‘Are We Dating the Same Guy?’ page

VIRGINIA BEACH, VA – A 30-year-old woman out of Virginia Beach was arrested in mid-July after authorities say she fatally shot her husband following a domestic dispute while the couple were in the midst of an ongoing divorce. Reports further show the suspect had recently posted about her now-late husband in a Facebook group titled “Are We Dating the Same Guy?” mere days before the killing.

On July 17th, Virginia Beach Police responded to a residence located off of the 5000 block of Bardith Circle, where officers discovered the dead body of 37-year-old Calvin Wang. Officials noted that the victim’s time of death appears to have been approximately two days before officers responded to the home.

According to authorities, Wang and his wife, Christina, had allegedly gotten into some sort of verbal spat at the home on July 15th, during which Christina reportedly slapped Wang. Following the battery incident, Wang reportedly told Christina to leave the home, though police say Christina opted to retrieve a firearm instead and shoot her husband in the stomach and head.

Court documents assert the entire incident was caught on video, and Christina also allegedly confessed to the murder. Per records from the Virginia Beach Circuit Court, the couple had been married since 2016 and the decedent had filed for divorce in 2022.

A filing from the decedent’s attorney regarding the divorce accused his wife of engaging in extramarital affairs, to which Christina’s attorney at the time countered with a filing that claimed, “Plaintiff has condoned Defendant’s adulterous acts and thus Plaintiff cannot use adultery as a ground for Divorce.”

Considering the background of adultery accusations, divorce proceedings, and Christina’s self-proclaimed permission to engage in adultery, the now-accused murderer had bizarrely taken to a Facebook group to inquire whether or not her husband was being faithful mere days before his slaying.

In the private Facebook group dubbed “Are We Dating The Same Guy? | Virginia Beach / Norfolk / Newport News,” Christina shared a photo of her husband along with a comment that read, “This is my husband Calvin. If you see him on this app or any of the others please know that he is MARRIED. And please let me know if he matches/chats with you.”

Christina has since been arrested and charged with second-degree murder and use of a firearm in commission of a felony. On August 2nd during a bail hearing, the accused murderer’s bond was denied, with prosecutors making mention of the home surveillance footage depicting the murder and Christina seen standing over her husband’s body with her hands on her hips after the fatal shooting.

Christina had allegedly brought the gun home on the day of the shooting according to prosecutors, emphasizing the “calculated and cruel” nature of the murder. Roger Whitus, the attorney representing Christina, fruitlessly attempted to argue that his client bore a history of anxiety and depression during the bond hearing.

Wang was reportedly an active-duty sailor in the Navy at the time of his death, with local Navy officials sharing the following statement regarding his passing:

“On July 17, 2023, Chief Fire Controlman (Aegis) Calvin Wang, an active-duty service member assigned to Surface Combat Systems Training Command (SCSTC) Detachment Middle Atlantic, was found deceased in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and coworkers during this time. This loss is felt personally by the people who served with him and by our Navy as a whole. Each Sailor is an invaluable part of our team and he is sorely missed. Grief counseling services and support are available through the chain of command and local chaplain. An investigation by the Virginia Beach Police Department is currently ongoing. Please direct all additional questions to Virginia Beach Police Department."
