Possible Motive In SF Slayings Case, Newly-released court documents Wednesday in the case of a quintuple murder in San Francisco’s Ingleside district last Friday reveal prosecutors believe the murders were committed during the course of a robbery.

The charging documents filed by the District Attorney Wednesday morning described the murder weapon as a “blunt instrument” and said the suspect killed the three women and two men inside a home at 16 Howth St. near City College of San Francisco “while lying in wait.”

The report also said the murders were committed while the defendant was “engaged in the commission of Robbery [and] Burglary.”

San Francisco resident Binh Thai Luc, 35, was arrested Sunday morning on suspicion of five counts of homicide.

The District Attorney’s office announced Tuesday that Binh Thai Luc is charged with five homicides with special circumstances.

District Attorney George Gascon told CBS 5 Tuesday he will thoroughly review the case, but the death penalty is “unlikely.”

Luc was ordered deported after serving his sentence for the 1997 conviction in Santa Clara County, but authorities in his native country of Vietnam declined to provide the appropriate travel documents for his deportation and he was ultimately released.
