AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Charles McStay, his wife and two small children disappeared four years ago, vanished is the better word, snatched from their suburban home. Today authorities arrested Charles Merritt, a business colleague, for the four murders.

 

San Bernardino County, California, District Attorney Michael Ramos said Charles “Chase” Merritt had been arrested and would be charged with the murders.

Ramos has yet to announce his intent in seeking the death penalty in the “cold and callous murders of an entire family.”

Joseph McStay, 40, his wife, Summer, 43, and their two young sons, Gianni, 4, and Joseph, 3, by all accounts were murdered according to authorities who said the family died of “blunt force trauma” inside their Fallbrook, California Home.

The bodies were discovered in shallow graves, one year ago, in the middle of the Mojave Desert, near Victorville, California some 120 miles northwest of their home.

This is a developing story.
