Orange County criminal lawyerThe murder mystery of a wealthy Orange County couple is closer to being solved. The couple’s 18-year-old son has been arrested in the case.

Police say Ashton Sachs shot his parents, Bradford Hans Sachs, 57, and Andra Resa Sachs, 54, before also shooting his 8-year-old brother, who survived but is paralyzed. Sachs is the owner of the gun used in the crime and police said he planned the shooting ahead of time. Police found Sachs staying with friends in San Diego. He was arrested and held without bail.

Sachs faces charges of two counts of murder with special circumstances for multiple murders and two counts of attempted murder with premeditation and deliberation. Sachs will also receive sentence enhancements for personal use of a firearm causing death, as well as personal use of a firearm causing bodily injury and paralysis. If convicted, he could receive life without parole and will be eligible for the death penalty.

The couple was found dead in their Juan Capistrano home on February 9. The home showed no signs of a break in and nothing was taken. Investigators do not have a motive in the killings.
