Additional Charges Filed Against Ventura Man In Triple Murder Case

Posted on Monday, May 7, 2012 3:59pm

The man accused of brutally murdering a Ventura County couple, and the couple’s unborn child in the family’s beachfront home is now facing additional charges.

A second Ventura County Grand Jury added a sexual assault charge, and two other counts to those already filed against Joshua Graham Packer.

The 22 year old Ventura man is accused of killing Brock and Davina Husted, and their unborn child grant, at the family’s Faria Beach home in May of 2009. Prosecutors had alleged the murders had occurred in the course of a burglary. Packer appeared in court to face the new Grand Jury indictment today, but entry of his pleas to the additional charges was deferred at his attorney’s request until May 16th.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty in the case.
