Yucca Valley man suspected of murder of his girlfriend’s dad


Police arrested a 23-year-old Yucca Valley man on Thursday after they say he murdered the father of a woman he had been dating.

Charles Brown, 63, was found dead in his car near Pappy and Harriet’s in Pioneertown on August 6. The car had been parked there for several days, according to the Hi-Desert Star.  Detectives say they found signs of foul play at the scene.

An investigation revealed that Tyler Cabella, of Yucca Valley, had been dating Brown’s daughter and may have killed him for “monetary reasons”, reports The Press Enterprise.

Police do not believe Brown’s daughter was involved.

Anyone with information should contact Detective Mark Green at 909-387-3589.
