Northridge Man Arrested and Charged for Murder of Parents, Sister

Los Angeles: A San Fernando Valley man was arrested Friday for the stabbing murders of his parents and teenage sister at their home in Northridge.

On August 4, 2006, around 6:00 a.m., officers from Devonshire Area Station responded to a 911 call at the residence in the 17000 block of Stare Street. When police arrived, they were met by Brandon Christopher Menard, 21, who lived at the house with his parents, brother and sister.

Officers found two bodies, David Menard, 58, and his wife, Tony, 58, inside the house. The body of their 16-year-old daughter, Ashley, was in the backyard. All three were victims of multiple stab wounds.

Brandon was questioned by detectives and taken into custody late Friday. A murder weapon was recovered at the scene. There are no additional suspects outstanding. The motive for the crime is unknown.

On Tuesday, August 8, the Los Angeles County District Attorney formally charged Brandon on three counts of capital murder with special circumstances. He remains in custody without bail.

Questions may be directed to Media Relations Section at 213-485-3586.
