YORBA LINDA (CBS) — Officials are investigating the murder of a man and a woman who were found dead in an Orange County home.

Police Wednesday afternoon identified Eder Giovanni Herrera, 24, as a suspect in the murder.

He was arrested five miles from the crime scene in a traffic stop around 6 a.m., Sgt. Jim Griffin of the Brea Police Department said.

Brea police received a 911 call around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday about strange noises coming from a home in the 4200 block of Trix Circle in Yorba Linda.

KNX 1070’s Mike Landa reports.

Blood was found in the home’s entryway when officers arrived on the scene.

“They backed away from that entry and continued their search around the house. They went around to the back of the house and from that viewpoint, they could see through the slider glass doors and they observed two adults down on the ground, unresponsive,” Sgt. Griffin.

The victim’s identities have not been released. Authorities say a woman and her two grown sons had been renting the 3,200 square foot home for about a year.
