ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) - Northern California officials have identified four people slain in October as the wife and three children of a man charged with carrying out the killings over nearly a week.

KCRA-TV reported Tuesday that Placer County officials identified the four as 46-year-old Jyothi Shankar, 20-year-old Varum Shankar, 16-year-old Gauri Hangud, and 13-year-old Nischal Hangud.

They have charged 53-year-old Shankar Hangud with killing two of the victims on Oct. 7 and a third one the next day at their home in Roseville, northeast of Sacramento.

He has pleaded not guilty, though prosecutors say he confessed without giving a motive.
