HACKENSACK, N.J. – A New York man has been charged with murdering three people whose bodies were found in a home in Tenafly, New Jersey.
Thirty-two-year-old Kang-Hyuk Choi of Valley Stream was arrested early Sunday in Commerce, California. New Jersey authorities are seeking to have him extradited to New Jersey.
Authorities say he quarreled with his first victim over money after spending a weekend socializing with him on May 3 and 4.
Their argument led to a fight. Prosecutors say Choi used a knife to stab Hang Il Kim multiple times in his bedroom.
The next morning, prosecutors say Choi stabbed Kim's mother Yoo Bok Kim as she came to check on her son, then killed another man who lived in the Tenafly home. That man has been identified as 70-year-old Doo Soo Seo.
