The two victims of stabbing who were found on Monday post an attack captured partially on Zoom video call have been identified as California college admin employee as well as her brother.
As per a report from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Robert Cotton has been charged with the deaths of his uncle Kenneth Wayne Preston and mother Carol Anne Brown a staff member of the Pasadena City College.
In a post on Facebook, the college said that when the murder took place, Brown was attending one remote video conference call along with other college staff members. However, none of the employee saw him stabbing Brown and Preston at their Altadena home, said the authorities.
The Deputies reported at the house after one 911 caller observed a man tugging another man in the living room, said the sheriff’s department. The officers discovered the bodies of Brown and Preston, who was stabbed several times, inside the house, said the press release.
The investigators found a car belonging to either Brown or Preston was missing and not present at the residence. Cotton, at some point, returned to the house with that missing car and was then detained, as per the sheriff’s department.
