SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The names of a couple found dead in their Torrey Highlands home and the son accused of killing them were released by San Diego Police Wednesday.

Xiaoqun Fang and Yi Cheng, both 58 years old, were due to arrive in San Francisco last Saturday.

Concerned family members called police, asking for a welfare check at the home at 7405 Via Rivera. Upon arrival, police looked through a window and saw a body on the floor.

Fang and Cheng had both suffered upper body trauma and were pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Cheng jumped from the Eastgate Mall overpass above Interstate 805, police said.

Detectives are searching for a motive in the murder.
