Larry Millete Wiki – Larry Millete Biography
Larry Millete, the husband of missing Chula Vista mother Maya Millete, was arrested for murder. The Chula Vista Police Department has confirmed the arrest of Larry for the murder of his wife, Maya Millete.
San Diego District Attorney Summer Stephan said that Larry will have no bail and that he will appear in court on Thursday, Oct. 21 at 1:30 p.m.
His age is unclear.
Maya Millete Murder
May Millete’s sister reported her missing on Jan. 9, two days after the last known sighting. Her family insisted that her absence was highly suspicious, telling news crews she would never leave her three children, ages 4, 9, and 11, or voluntarily miss her eldest daughter’s birthday, which was days after the woman’s disappearance.
“I want to say thank you to everyone for being here today…for all the support,” said Maricris Tabalanza Drouaillet, Maya’s sister who spoke at Tuesday’s press conference. “It’s been nine months…it’s just overwhelming at this time for me… It’s been really hard, he’s our family. It’s hard to go against the family…He’s been with us for 20 years.”
Police searched the couple’s Paseo Los Gatos house that month and two more times in May and July, and have executed nearly six dozen other warrants allowing them to seek evidence in various residences and vehicles, and from cellular and electronic devices, financial records, social media accounts, and other online data, according to Lt. Dan Peek, a spokesman for the Chula Vista Police Department.
Larry Millete Arrested
Larry was arrested Tuesday morning for the alleged murder of his wife, Maya Millete, who vanished from their Chula Vista home more than nine months ago.
A flashbang could be heard moments before a SWAT team entered the house, followed by police instructions over a loudspeaker. The FBI then set up a mobile command center right outside the family’s home.
The Chula Vista Police Department partnered with the FBI, NCIS, and San Diego County District Attorney on the case, writing 67 search warrants and interviewing more than 100 witnesses over the past nine months.
According to San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan, Larry faces charges of murder and illegal possession of an assault weapon.
He was named a person of interest in the case in July, and a gun violence restraining order was served against him in May when police seized more than a dozen of his guns.
One of Larry’s weapons, a .40 caliber handgun, has still not been recovered by authorities.
Larry had been withdrawing large sums of money from the bank in the days leading up to his arrest, making it look like he was going to flee, according to Billy Little, an attorney who has been working with Maya’s family.
“I hope the guy burns in hell,” Little told Fox News.
