Memorial fund set up for relatives of three slain in Rancho Cordova

A memorial fund has been set up for the surviving family members whose loved ones were slain in a bloody attack in Rancho Cordova on Tuesday afternoon.

The Denis Bukhantsov Memorial Trust Fund, set up in the name of the victims' husband and father, was set up through Premier West Bank. The account number is 82804765. There are several branches in the Sacramento region, including one at 9340 East Stockton Boulevard in Elk Grove, 95624.

The fund will benefit the family of 23-year-old Alina Bukhantsov and her two children, 3-year-old Emmanuela and 2-year-old Avenir. Denis Bukhantsov found their bodies in the family's Rancho Cordova duplex on Tuesday afternoon.

The couple's youngest child, a 6-month-old boy, was found safe in another room.

Sacramento County sheriff's detectives arrested Denis Bukhantsov's brother, 19-year-old Grigoriy Bukhantsov, on suspicion of three counts of murder. He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
