Attempted Homicide Suspect Arrested By Fresno Police

FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

On December 11, 2013, at 10:00 p.m., Northwest patrol officers responded to a residence in the 2700 block of N. Dewey for a call of a disturbance with an injured person inside the residence.

When the officers arrived, they received no response from the residents but believed someone inside the residence needed medical attention and forced their way in.

They found a 58-year-old man and a 53-year-old woman injured inside.

Officers immediately began providing first aid and requested EMS. 

Both victims were transported to Community Regional Medical Center for treatment. 

The man suffered life-threatening blunt force trauma to his head and the woman sustained serious non-life threatening injuries to her face and body.

Officers learned from the victims they are husband and wife and their attacker was their 21-year-old son, Kevin Elia, who also lived at the residence.

Later that night at approximately 1:00 a.m., officers and detectives were still at the residence when Kevin Elia returned to the home and was taken into custody without incident.

Street Violence Section Felony Assault Detectives Justin Hoagland and Leslie Bragg interviewed Kevin Elia who confessed to the assault.  Kevin Elia was booked into Fresno County Jail for attempt homicide and felony battery.
