A Sunnyvale man was arrested this week for allegedly killing his wife and 11-year-old daughter, the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety said Thursday.

Officers responded around 2:30 p.m. Wednesday to the lobby of the Sunnyvale DPS headquarters, where Leonid Solomonovich Yamburg, 51, allegedly told a records clerk he killed his wife.

Yamburg was subsequently arrested in connection with their deaths, according to the Sunnyvale DPS. The cause of their deaths remains under investigation.
