Corona Man Convicted In Monterey Park Double Murder

By City News Service

A Corona-area man was convicted Tuesday of double murder for shooting his ex-girlfriend and her new boyfriend in Monterey Park.

The Alhambra Superior Court jury that convicted Richard Tauch, 49, of two counts of first-degree murder also found true the special circumstance allegations of multiple murders and lying in wait, according to Deputy District Attorney David Ayvazian.

Authorities believe the Jan. 19, 2010, slayings of Jenny Sor and Wen Wa Chao were motivated by jealousy.

Tauch had lived with Sor for about two years. She kicked him out just under a month before she was killed, according to the prosecutor.

Sor and Chao were shot as she walked into an assisted senior citizens’ apartment to visit Chao’s father, Ayvazian said.

Tauch is facing life in prison without the possibility of parole, with sentencing set for Jan. 24.
