California dad charged with murder in deaths of his children

California dad charged with murder in deaths of his children

Robert Hodges, 32, faces three charges of premeditated first-degree murder and one charge of felony attempted murder against his wife.

Reisig alleged that Robert Hodges used a belt as a weapon in the killing of his three children, 11-year-old Kelvin, 9-year-old Julie and Lucas, who was born in January.

Prosecutors also charged Hodges with the attempted murder of his wife, Mai Hodges, after she called police Wednesday to report she had been assaulted.

Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig said he would be handling the case personally. Hodges was arrested for murder and taken into custody without incident.

Thirty-two-year-old Robert Hodges was arrested for the murders of his three children last Thursday.

Officials have not yet decided whether to seek the death penalty if Robert Hodges is convicted.

Reisig told reporters on Monday that it could "take months" to determine whether prosecutors would pursue an execution.

Neighbors who witnessed some of the altercation claim that Hodges's wife, Mai, ran from their second-story apartment after being choked.

Hodges is expected to make his first court appearance later in the day.
