Three men have been arrested in the killing of Rex Farrance, a senior technical editor for PC World in San Francisco, according to a story in the San Francisco Chronicle.
Henry Lee wrote, “The men were each charged with two special circumstances that could result in the death penalty if they are convicted: murder in the commission of a robbery and murder in the commission of a burglary, said Contra Costa County prosecutor Harold Jewett.
“The men demanded money after bursting into Farrance’s home on Argosy Court, which was filled with a large quantity of marijuana, authorities said. Farrance turned 59 two days before he was killed. His wife, Lenore Vantosh-Farrance, was pistol-whipped, and the robbers made off with a safe with guns inside, police said.
“Hudson was allegedly armed with a .22-caliber revolver when he shot Farrance in the chest, said Pittsburg police Lt. Brian Addington. The weapon was recovered six days after the slaying following a car chase involving two half-brothers of Amos, Addington said.”
