SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say money was not a motive for a 19-year-old man charged with shooting his parents to death and trying to kill two of his siblings inside their luxury Orange County home.

Ashton Sachs, wearing an orange jumpsuit, appeared via video for his first court appearance Monday. He barely spoke, except to tell the judge he could not afford a lawyer.

Deputy District Attorney Ebrahim Baytieh said Sachs was not motivated by money and the crime did not happen in the spur of the moment.

Prosecutors said Sachs made a trip home from Seattle planning to kill his family.

Bradford Sachs and Andra Sachs were found shot to death in February inside their nearly 9,000-square-foot San Juan Capistrano house. Their 8-year-old son was also shot but survived. Two daughters survived.
