Authorities in Northern California say a man suspected of killing his parents in their Sonoma County home was taken into custody Monday afternoon.
The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office said 34-year-old Nathan Alexander Wilson was taken into custody around 4:30 p.m. local time, after someone called into the Mendocino Sheriff’s Office saying they saw his truck parked along Tomki Road in the Redwood Valley area of Mendocino County.
When Mendocino County Deputies arrived at the location, they found the truck abandoned and began to search for the suspect on foot in the area.
The Ukiah Police Department then spotted a man who matched the description of Wilson walking down the street of town near the MendoMill, Calif.
When first approached by police, officers said the man lied about his name, but the Ukiah PD Officers identified Wilson by the California Driver’s License in his pocket.
Wilson is being held in the Mendocino County Jail and awaits extradition to Sonoma County to face charges in the murder of his parents, David Wilson and Adrianne Chapin.
Deputies responded to a home outside of Sebastopol, Calif. after receiving a report that a relative thought his nephew had just killed his brother and sister-in-law, KTVU reported.
The sheriff's office told the television station the two suffered multiple stab wounds from a sharp object.
The relative also told police that Wilson was also covered in blood when he arrived at the house, Sgt. Cecile Focha, a spokeswoman for the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office, told SFGate.com.
