|In this undated photo supplied by the Sacramento County sheriff's office, Grigoriy Bukhantsov is seen. Deputies on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012, arrested the 19-year-old brother of a man whose wife and two young children were found brutally slain inside their suburban Sacramento home a day earlier. The department's spokesman, Sgt. Jason Ramos, said "something bad was brewing for some time" between the suspect and his extended family. Bukhantsov was taken into custody early Wednesday morning and was being booked at Sacramento County Jail. Ramos said he was the only suspect in the Tuesday killing of the woman, her 2-year-old son and 3-year-old daughter. A 6-month-old boy was found unharmed in the Rancho Cordova duplex.

Uncle charged in triple-murder had troubled ties
Maria Murguia, who lives next door to the home where the slayings occurred, said she didn’t know the family well, but would often say hello to them, especially when she saw the children playing in the backyard. She said she never heard any yelling or fighting coming from the home.
‘‘They were a normal family. I heard the babies playing in the backyard and saw their mother giving them food sometimes. I never see anything,’’ she said. ‘‘I don’t know what happened, and I'm so sad because those are little kids.’’
