ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Police say an ex-Marine charged with killing four homeless men in Orange County is linked to the stabbing deaths of a Yorba Linda woman and her son.
Anaheim police Lt. Julian Harvey says there is an association between the ex-Marine, Itzcoatl Ocampo, and Eder Herrera, who is currently in custody in the deaths of the woman and her son.
Harvey didn't specify the nature of the association. He made the announcement Thursday at a news conference in Anaheim.
The 23-year-old Ocampo is an Iraq war veteran from Yorba Linda who has been charged with murdering the four homeless men in December and January.
Raquel Estrada and her son Juan Herrera were killed in October, less than two miles from Ocampo's home.
