ANAHEIM, Calif.—A 43-year-old Anaheim man was arrested Nov. 8 on suspicion of killing his parents.

Carlos Manuel Robles-Lopez was booked on suspicion of killing 67-year-old Andres Alvaro-Robles and 65-year-old Teresa Lopez-Miguel, according to Anaheim police Sgt. Shane Carringer.

Investigators were working to determine how the couple was killed, but their injuries were “consistent with a violent assault,” Carringer said.

Police were called about 7:50 p.m. Sunday to the victims’ apartment on the 600 block of West Vermont Avenue, Carringer said.

When police arrived, they found the couple. Andres was pronounced dead at the scene, but Teresa was taken to an area hospital, where she was later pronounced dead, Carringer said.

The suspect also lived in the apartment off and on and was arrested there without incident, Carringer said.

The suspect was being held in Anaheim’s jail in lieu of $1 million bail.
