LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles County coroner has identified the victims in the brutal slaying of a grandmother and her four grandchildren in the California high desert. The children’s father is charged with five counts of murder and three counts of assault on a child causing death. Authorities haven’t released a possible motive for the weekend attack in Lancaster. It wasn’t immediately clear whether Germarcus David has a lawyer who could speak on his behalf. The coroner’s office says the deceased are: 51-year-old Ericka England, 11-year-old Namyiah David, 7-year-old Germarcus David Jr., 2-year-old Kaden David and 1-year-old Noah David.
