A disturbing crime was reported from the Hacienda Heights in California after a 44-year-old man allegedly used a baseball bat to fatally kill his mother and stepfather. The suspect was identified as Nelson Fermin Garibay who is facing two counts of murder and one count of willful, deliberate and premeditated murder attempt.

On Jan. 11, deputies from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon at 14400 block of Marwood Street in Hacienda Heights. When they arrived, they were met by a 37-year-old man who turned out to be Garibay’s brother. He revealed that he was attacked by his brother.

From there, he led the deputies inside the home where they found Irma Garibay (65) and Mario Flores-Romero (73). Both suffered head trauma and were pronounced dead at the scene, People.com reported.

All three were reportedly beaten by Garibay using a baseball bat before fleeing the scene. The 44-year-old was arrested on Jan. 21 according to an update from the LA County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page.

Garibay was apprehended in Otay, California, and was then transported to Industry Station for booking.

"The facts in this case are truly disturbing and we will ensure that there is accountability for these senseless killings," Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón said. "We ask that if anyone has information that can be helpful to the investigation and prosecution of this case, please contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department."

The reason behind the attacks remains unknown although the victims were known to be wonderful parents and best grandparents. There was the description placed on the GoFundMe page set up by the family.

Mario is retired and was looking forward to enjoying his days with his grandchildren. Irma, on the other hand, was described as a loving grandmother who loved to help others according to Martha Flores-Viera.

"She was very involved in collecting toys and clothing for children and women in need."
