Suspect In NC Family Slaying Dead; Father Could Face Charges

A man whose family was killed last week at their home in Conover could face drug charges after investigators said he may have been trafficking drugs through his home.

State Bureau of Investigation officials say today that Brian Tzeo knew the murder suspect, Chiew Chan Saevang. Arrest warrants against Saevang included trafficking opium. Tzeo could face similar charges.

Tzeo's wife, Lisa Saephan, and the couple's three children were found dead last Thursday.

Officials said Saevang killed himself and his girlfriend after a high speed chase in Utah late last night.

Services for Saephan and the children --20-year-old Melanie, 18-year old Pauline and 4-year-old Cody -- are scheduled today at a funeral home in Newton.
