Lakeville resident Todd Bachman, whose family owns the Bachmann's chain of garden centers, has been identified as the victim of a fatal stabbing in Beijing, China. His wife, Barbara, a former member of the Dakota County Fair Board, reportedly was injured.

In a statement on its Web page the United States Olympic Committee confirmed the couple was attacked Aug. 9 while visiting the Drum Tour tourist site in Beijing, near the Forbidden City. The single attacker reportedly then threw himself from the tower, apparently committing suicide.

The Bachmans' son-in-law is a coach for the U.S. Olympic men's volleyball team.
