DA: West Sacramento Man Used Belt In Killing Of His 3 Children

WEST SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – The district attorney’s office is releasing new details in the case of a West Sacramento man suspected of murdering his three children.

Monday, the Yolo County District Attorney announced that they will be filing three counts of first-degree murder charges against Robert Hodges. The 33-year-old West Sacramento resident’s three children were found dead in an apartment last week.

Hodges is also facing a charge of attempted murder for allegedly attacking his wife.

The DA’s office also released a few more details about the incident, charging that Hodges used a belt to murder the children

Yolo County District Attorney Jeff Reisig said he would be handling the case personally.

The three children killed have been identified as 11-year-old Kelvin, 9-year-old Julie and 7-month-old Lucas. Kelvin and Julie were students at Southport Elementary School in West Sacramento.

Hodges had no criminal record in Yolo or Sacramento Counties prior to his arrest, a records search shows.

The mother of the children released a statement on Friday, writing in part: “There’s many stories out there that aren’t true of what happened. I still can’t get it out of my head. For those that know Robbie know he was once a loving and caring father and husband … I would never have imagine he is capable of something like this.”

  1. What would make this guy go loco like this? Drugs…meth/pot honey oil/heroin.

    If narcotics played a role, then Hodges’ drug dealer should be executed for this crime, too.
