Son Charged In Killing Parents In California Home

Posted: Updated:

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a college student has been charged with killing his parents and trying to kill his brother and sister in the family's luxury Southern California home.
    
The Orange County district attorney's office on Friday charged 19-year-old Ashton Sachs with two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder. If convicted of all charges, he could face the death penalty.
    
Prosecutors say Sachs returned to Orange County from Seattle and fatally shot Bradford Sachs and Andra Sachs on Feb. 9 while they slept in their San Juan Capistrano home.
    
They say he also shot his 8-year-old brother, who was paralyzed by the gunfire, and fired at his 17-year-old sister but missed.
    
Sachs was arrested Thursday by sheriff's investigators. He is being held without bail.
