Prosecutors have charged a California man with killing his parents and their housekeeper in an upscale community.

The Orange County district attorney’s office charged 27-year-old Camden Nicholson on Friday with three counts of murder and an enhancement alleging multiple murders.

Nicholson’s arraignment was delayed to March 8. His lawyer Jessica Ann Watts didn’t immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Nicholson was arrested Wednesday after authorities found his parents, Richard and Kim Nicholson, and their housekeeper Maria Morse dead in a home in Newport Beach.

Authorities say a man has been arrested on suspicion of killing his parents and their housekeeper in an upscale Southern California community.

Orange County sheriff’s spokeswoman Carrie Braun said Friday that 64-year-old Richard Nicholson, 61-year-old Kim Nicholson and 57-year-old Maria Morse were found dead in a Newport Beach home Wednesday.

Newport Beach police spokeswoman Heather Rangel says the Nicholsons are parents of 27-year-old suspect Camden Nicholson and Morse was their housekeeper.

Authorities say they were found dead when police made a welfare check at the home in response to a request by officers who had contact with Camden Nicholson at a hospital.

No charges had been filed against him early Friday. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
