Santa Barbara, CA: Man, woman identified in Calif. murder-suicide

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Investigators say they've identified a man and a woman who were found dead in what appeared to be a murder-suicide at a Santa Barbara County apartment.

Sheriff's Lt. Drew Sugars said Monday the bodies of Heidi Hubrecht and Luis DeDios of Goleta, both 23 years old, were discovered at around 2:30 a.m. Friday. A third woman was also stabbed with non-life-threatening wounds.

The victims were found after sheriff's deputies responded to a report of a stabbing involving a male suspect. Sugars says DeDios was waiting for Hubrecht when she arrived home with her 21-year-old roommate and attacked both with a hunting knife before stabbing himself multiple times.Hubrecht and DeDios died at the scene.

The two had dated for about 18 months and their relationship had recently ended.
