San Jose teen charged as adult in slaying of parents

SAN JOSE (KTVU) -- Two sons of a couple found fatally shot at a home in San Jose's Evergreen neighborhood Sunday have both been charged with murder, prosecutors said Friday.

The bodies of Shamima Rabbi, 57, and her husband, Golam Rabbi, were found last weekend in their home in the Evergreen neighborhood, located in the 3000 block of Lucas Court in San Jose. Golam was shot more than a dozen times. His wife was shot once in the head, according to Assistant District Attorney Matt Braker.


Investigators said no other suspects are being sought in connection with the case.

The Rabbis moved to San Jose from Bangladesh over 30 years ago. The couple's slaying has shocked residents in their upscale neighborhood.

In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, the eldest of the boys told the newspaper that his younger brother was not involved in the crime and the real story would emerge during trial.

Both brothers then went to an anime convention in Oakland.

"I'll simply state, that they're working tirelessly to answer those questions and to ensure that both of these victims receive justice," says Braker.

"Back in the day he used to be made fun of. I'm shocked in a way. But I wouldn't say I'm completely shocked," says Shawn Ladao, who went to school with Hasib.

The brothers are being held without bail. A preliminary hearing is set for May 9th.
