3 more arrested in death of wealthy Bay Area investor

MONTE SERENO — Three more people have been arrested in connection with the brutal home-invasion slaying of a wealthy Silicon Valley venture capitalist.

Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police said over the weekend that Deangelo Austin and Javier Garcia, both 21, and 26-year-old Lucas Anderson were arrested on suspicion of homicide in the death of Raveesh Kumra, the former owner of Mountain Winery in Saratoga.

The fourth suspect, 22-year-old Raven Chanel Dixon, was arraigned on Dec. 21 after being charged as an accessory in the killing.

The 66-year-old Kumra was killed in his Monte Sereno mansion on Nov. 30. Police say his wife called 911 to report that intruders had ransacked their home and beaten her. They have released few other details, including a possible motive.

According to KCBS, Dixon's attorney has said his client was wrongfully charged. It was not immediately clear whether the other suspects had attorneys.
