After nearly a month, the murder case involving Robert Chae, 58-year-old father and businessman, has been solved.
Three men ambushed Chae and his wife as they were leaving their North Wales home just after dawn on Friday, January 9th.
Chae’s wife and children were bound while the attackers ransacked their home during the brutal home invasion, which claimed Chae’s life.
Prosecutors announced today that Chae’s nephew was one of the individuals arrested in his uncle's killing.
25-year-old Angelo Shin, Chae's nephew, has been charged with 3rd degree murder. He is being held on $500,000 bail.
“He is a traitor to his family, his people. His treachery is the lowest kind ever seen. He got $2,000 to betray his family,” Montgomery County Prosecutor Risa Vetri Ferman said at a press conference Wednesday.
Shin's involvement shocked investigators. They said the man used to live with the victims after immigrating to the United States.

In addition to Shin, five others have been charged with his murder. Police are still searching for two of the accomplices.
Search warrants were executed in Philadelphia and the arrests were made late Tuesday night, according to sources.
In recent weeks reward money has reached over $30,000 for anyone with information leading to the arrests of those involved.
