Pair Arrested in Google Candidate Killing

Two video grabs released by the Oakland Police Department Wednesday show the two men the department wants to speak to.

The Oakland police department made quick work in a high-profile homicide case involving the death of a man in town for a job interview at Google.

On Monday, they said they had both of their prime suspects under arrest.

Police arrested a 33-year-old woman on Saturday who they say has confessed in taking part in the robbery and homicide of 45-year-old Jinghong Kang. Althea Housley faces armed robbery and homicide charges.

Then on Monday police arrested 24-year-old George Hugguins. They say he took part in the crime.

Police released surveillance photos of the suspects in Kang's killing last week and credit someone who recognized the photo and called them for helping crack the case. Authorities say someone recognized Hugguins and held him down until police came to make the arrest.

Kang was killed on the night of July 18 on Webster Street.  He was in town from Virginia for the job interview in Mountain View.  He was in Oakland getting his teeth cleaned ahead of that interview when he was shot. He was also robbed -- of $17.
