Calif. Quadruple Homicide Reportedly Result Of Washing Machine Dispute

By Samantha Crook | January 2, 2016

Authorities say a domestic dispute ended in a quadruple homicide in Rowland Heights, California.

On New Year's Eve, a 54-year-old man allegedly killed his wife, his son's girlfriend and a guest visiting the family — before his son fatally shot him.

Authorities are still investigating, but Lt. John Corina told The San Gabriel Valley Tribune, "It looks like it was a dispute between the dad and the son’s girlfriend, probably over using the washing machine."
