Man arrested in double murder at Rancho Cucamonga home with no known motive

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. (KABC) -- A 19-year-old man has been arrested for the murders of a Rancho Cucamonga woman and her daughter.

Jacob Alan Wright of Rancho Cucamonga is accused of killing 44-year-old Jia Jia and 8-year-old Ruby Meng at their home last month.
