Family Murdered in California: Orange County man convicted of murdering girlfriend and her two young sons

SANTA ANA, California– A Southern California man was convicted on Wednesday of stabbing his girlfriend and killing their two young sons, whose bodies were never found.

Shazer Fernando Limas, 42, of Orange, was convicted of first-degree murder on three counts of committing multiple murders involving special circumstances. If convicted in February, he faces life without the possibility of parole.

Limas stabbed 31-year-old Arlet Hernandez Contreras 48 times at his home in April 2012 after an argument a day or two earlier, the Orange County Attorney’s Office said in a statement.

Prosecutors said he then killed their sons, 16-month-old Fernando Hernandez Limas and 2-month-old Emanuel Hernandez Limas.

The conviction came on Fernando’s 12th birthday, prosecutors said.

Limas, who also had another girlfriend, “let the bodies of contreras and boys rot in a balcony closet for 10 days while he continued to go to dance clubs, rent limousines and even have friends over at his apartment,” the prosecutor’s office said.

After Limas bleached bloodstains from his carpet, Limas loaded Contreras’ body into a large box and drove her in a rented U-Haul to an industrial area in neighboring Los Angeles County, where her body was found in a gully, prosecutors said.

After getting rid of that body, Limas reportedly drove another 100 miles to dispose of the children’s bodies, which were never found, prosecutors said.

“He killed his entire family and threw them out like trash,” District Attorney Todd Spitzer said in a statement.

A few days later, Limas canceled his lease on his apartment.

“Management of the apartment contacted the Orange Police Department after workers reported a suspicious odor, blood spatter on the walls and pools of blood under the bleached carpet,” prosecutors said in a statement.

Limas was arrested after a high-speed chase on two highways.
