Man arrested in home invasion slaying

 Police have made an arrest in the home invasion slaying last year of a Southern California couple in their beach house, authorities said Monday.

Joshua Graham Packer, 20, of Ventura is facing charges including three counts of murder and two counts of robbery, Capt. Ross Bonfiglio of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department said.

Bonfiglio said the Ventura County Sheriff's Department will discuss more details at a news conference later Monday.

Packer is accused of murdering Brock Husted, his wife, Davina Husted, and her fetus. The Husteds, who were both 42, were stabbed to death in their seaside home in Faria Beach, California, on May 20.

Until the couple's slaying, the gated community of luxury homes had not recorded a homicide in 15 years, police said.
