Man charged with killing five of his children when they were babies

A man has been charged with killing five of his own children – none of them more than six months old.

Paul Perez, who is already behind bars in California, is accused of killing the infants between 1992 and 2001.

The remains of one of the siblings, three-month-old Nikko Lee Perez, were discovered by a fisherman in March 2007, submerged in an irrigation canal northwest of Sacramento.

Yolo County Sheriff’s Office said the baby was “found in a sealed container and weighed down with heavy objects”.

No information was discovered to further an investigation at the time – but in October, the infant was identified by DNA comparison.
