Police: Man who killed parents feared psychiatric commitment

  • Camden Nicholson is expected to be arraigned Friday on three counts of murder

NEWPORT BEACH, California: Court documents show a Southern California man charged with the murders of his mother, father and their housekeeper called police from his cellphone and confessed.
Camden Nicholson is expected to be arraigned Friday on three counts of murder.
Police say in court filings that one victim was found in a closet in the family’s Newport Beach home and another’s eyes appeared gouged. They say Nicholson told an officer he killed his parents because he didn’t want them to send him to a psychiatric hospital for evaluation.
Some who knew the couple said they were unaware of their son’s troubles. But police documents and a lawsuit filed after the murders say he had depression and anger issues.
Messages sent to Nicholson’s attorney were not returned.

The opposition stalwart was arrested in a joint operation by NAB’s Rawalpindi and Sukkur chapters, Pakistan’s DawnNewsTV reported. He will remain in custody on Wednesday evening.
