A Canyon Country man has been charged with murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and sister, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office announced today.

Lance Anderson, 60, is expected to be arraigned today in Los Angeles Superior Court in San Fernando on two counts of murder with the special circumstance allegation of multiple murders and a special allegation of intentional discharge of a firearm with great bodily injury, said Deputy District Attorney Carolyn McNary in a news release.

Prosecutors allege Anderson shot and killed his 68-year-old wife, identified as Bertha Maxine Anderson, in the home they shared on Claudette Street in a condominium complex in Canyon Country and later fatally shot his 58-year-old sister, Lisa Florence Nave, as she lay as an invalid in her bed in a convalescent home in North Hills.

If convicted as charged, Anderson could face the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Anderson is being held without bail, according to the District Attorney’s office. Deputy District Attorney Julie Kramer is assigned to the case.

The case remains under investigation by the Los Angeles Police Department and Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
