An Ethiopian immigrant was charged with capital murder Monday in the stabbing deaths of his father and sister, whose bodies were found near California freeways. Mulushewa Tebedge, 33, was arrested Wednesday, a day after the dismembered body of his 73-year-old father was found in suitcases and a duffel bag near the Interstate 5 highway in western Fresno County, police said. During questioning, Tebedge told investigators about his younger sister, Zerfie Tibeje Getahun, whose body was found off Highway 101 in Santa Barbara County, said homicide Detective Chris Luna. Tebedge has been charged with two counts of murder and the special circumstance allegation of multiple murders, district attorney's spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said.
