Man Accused In Triple Murder On South Coast Formally Charged

Working over the Easter weekend, members of the Santa Barbara County District Attorney's office finalized papers for formal charges against South Coast resident Pierre Haobsh.

Haobsh allegedly killed Dr. Henry Han, his wife Jenny and daughter Emily.

They were found dead in a Goleta Valley home last Wednesday evening, shot and wrapped in cellophane in the garage.

Haobsh was apprehended Friday morning at gunpoint outside of Oceanside in San Diego county.

District Attorney Joyce Dudley says besides the murder charges, more charges could be filed against Haobsh in this killing.

The motive for the killings are said to be financial gain, but no other details or business dealings between the suspect and Dr. Han have been released. Haobsh will be in Superior court for his arraignment on Tuesday.
