Woman, 2 grandsons found dead had ties to Sacramento church

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Officials have identified three people found dead in a Sacramento home this weekend as a grandmother and her two adult grandsons. They had ties to a church that emphasizes overseas ministries.

The Sacramento County Coroner on Monday identified one of the three as 68-year-old Christine Lucas, saying she is survived by husband John Lucas.

Church websites say they are pastors of Gloryland Revival Center International Ministries in Sacramento and traveled extensively to the Philippines and elsewhere for missions.

Their grandsons, 23-year-old Marquise Brown and 19-year-old James Robert Ferrell, were also killed.

The three were found dead Saturday in a complex across from a fire station. They had traumatic injuries and the deaths are being investigated as homicides.

Police say they don't have a motive and have made no arrests.
