Authorities say Resiles was attempting to burglarize the home but once he got inside, he noticed Su was inside.

Su’s son Justin Su, returned home to find his mother stabbed to death inside of a bathtub with her hands and ankles bound.

Resiles’ initial trial in December ended in a mistrial.

Now that he has been found guilty, he could now face the death penalty.
