West Coast arrest made in Tenafly triple murder

Police across the country have arrested a suspect in connection with a triple murder in Tenafly.

California police picked up Kang Hyuk Choi, 32, early Sunday. Choi is currently in the process of being extradited to New Jersey.

The suspect is believed to be involved with three stabbing deaths at 169 Tenafly Rd. The bodies were discovered Friday, and police believe the killings may have taken place a week ago or longer.

The three victims have yet to be identified. Authorities say the bodies had already decomposed passed the point of recognition when they were found. Dental records will be used to make accurate identifications.

Choi is being held without bail on a felony warrant. A news conference on the incident will be held Monday by the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office.
