A Bay Areasheriff’s deputy who allegedly shot and killed a couple with whom he was ensnared in a love triangle faces murder charges and has been arraigned Friday.

Devin Williams, Jr., a 24-year-old deputy for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, is currently facing felony murder charges in Alameda County Superior Court after allegedly murdering his lover, Maria Tran, and her husband, Benison Tran early Wednesday morning within their Dublin home.

In accordance with Alameda County court papers, Dublin police received a call at 12: 45 a.m. from Marias brother alleging that Williams shot the couple. Police found them with gunshot wounds with their heads; shell casings labeled Speer 9mm were bought at the scene. County fire officials declared the Tran couple dead at the scene. The brother was unharmed.

License plate readers revealed Williams car driving south on Fallon Gateway close to the couples home soon after the decision. At around 11 a.m. that day, Williams surrendered to authorities and was taken into custody in Coalinga, 147 miles from the scene of the alleged murders, the authorities department told SFGATE Wednesday.

Police detectives say they learned from Williams father that his son was in a relationship with Maria Tran and that she had visited their house in Stockton.

Our hearts and condolences venture out to the household, friends and community of both victims killed in this incident, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy OMalley said in a statement.
