The man charged in the murders of a family of four in the Cypress area that went unsolved for eight years is waiting to be extradited from California to Texas
For years there were no new leads in a January 2014 massacre that led to the shooting deaths of two parents – father Maoye Sun and his wife Mei Xie – and their two small children – 9-year-old Timothy and 7-year-old Titus.
New information from court documents gives a look at what police believe led up to the unthinkably gruesome tragedy.
This past Sunday — more than eight years after the Sun family was killed — 58-year-old Feng Lu was arrested in California and charged with capital murder in connection to their deaths.
Court documents reveal that this all may have started because of an issue at work.
During an interview with investigators, Lu told police he asked Sun for a recommendation for a promotion.

Lu told police he heard that Sun did not provide the recommendation, so he called him to ask why he didn’t give it. Sun reportedly told Lu he did recommend him, the documents state.
