    CA - Rudolfo Alvarado, 51, Eva Gonzales, 36, & 2 sons slain, Los Angeles, 26 Apr 1999

    33-year-old Saulo Alvarado has been arraigned on charges of murdering his father, stepmother and two half brothers in Hyde Park, Los Angeles in 1999. He's also been charged with two counts of forcible lewd acts on a child.

    Saulo, who was deported back to Guatemala in 2003 for an unrelated rape, was extradited back to LA in February. He's accused of shooting dad Rudolfo, 51, stepmom Eva Veronica, 36 and step brothers Renzo,16 and Victor, 4 and then placing the gun in Renzo's hand to make the deaths appear murder/suicides.

    It's not known how the child abuse charges are related to the case. Saulo was 16 at the time but is charged as an adult so isn't eligible for the death penalty if found guilty.

    This link says he could face the death penalty but according to the LA DA's office, that isn't so.

    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    Man Convicted of Killing His Father, Stepmother and 2 Half-Brothers in Hyde Park When He Was 16

    A man was convicted killing his stepmother, father and two half-brothers in a slaying in Hyde Park he staged to appear as a murder-suicide nearly 20 years ago — when he was just 16, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

    A Los Angeles jury found Saulo Alvarado guilty of four counts of first-degree murder Monday, in addition to a count of forcible lewd act on a child and of lewd act on a child, prosecutors said.

    A “violent, heartless” murderer who killed his father, stepmother and two half-brothers in their Hyde Park home, when he was a teenager, and trying to make the 1999 shootings look like a murder-suicide was sentenced Tuesday to life in prison without the possibility of parole.

    Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Kathleen Kennedy — who criticized the Los Angeles Police Department for its initial investigation into the killings — noted that Saulo Cesar Alvarado, now 35, will be entitled to a hearing in 25 years to determine whether he should be released on parole given that he was a juvenile at the time of the shootings.

    “I personally don’t believe that you should ever be released,” the judge told the defendant, calling him a “violent, heartless individual whose character is set.”
