OLDER COUPLE SLAYED

An older couple killed in their Davis home in April of this year, died from multiple stab wounds.  According to the Yolo County Coroner says the two bodies identified as Oliver Northup and his wife Claudia Maupin, were both stabbed multiple times.  The deaths have been classified homicide. Northup and Maupin were found inside their home along Cowell Boulevard, near Mace Boulevard, Sunday night.

The police went to check on the elderly couple after reports that no one had heard from them in days. 

UPDATE ON THE CASE: Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy in connection to the murder of two elderly Davis residents. 

Police say the 16-year-old Davis resident, who is not being identified because he is a minor, is being held to charges for the double murder. Police believe there are no other suspects in the case.

The couple were found inside their home along Cowell Boulevard, near Mace Boulevard, back on April 14. Multiple stab wounds were found on the two, and investigators found signs of forced entry into their home.

Neighbors say the Davis home being investigated by FBI went up for sale shortly after the couple was found murdered.

Officers from the Davis Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the California Department of Justice, the Yolo County District Attorney’s Office, the West Sacramento Police Department and the Dixon Police Department helped served the warrants Monday.

The investigation into the murder is on-going, with police still asking anyone with information to call them at (530) 747-5400.
