Ali Elmezayen, 44, was charged with two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder for killing his two young sons in 2015 when he allegedly drove the family's car off the pier at the Port of Los Angeles, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office said.

Cops: Man steals car with kids inside, fatally beaten by mob Authorities say a man who stole a car with three young children inside was fatally beaten by their father and other men. Philadelphia police say the car was parked at a pizza restaurant with its engine running when the man drove off around 9:15 p.m. Thursday. The children's mother was inside the restaurant, talking with the father of two of the kids. The vehicle soon got stuck in traffic, and authorities say the couple pulled the 54-year-old man out of the vehicle. The man ran off but was caught by the father. A fight ensued, with other men joining in.

Prosecutors said Elmezayen collected more than $260,000 in insurance payouts after the children's deaths.

Elmezayen purchased insurance policies worth $6 million in coverage on himself, his domestic partner and his children in 2012 and 2013, ABC's Los Angeles station KABC reported, citing a criminal complaint.

He allegedly paid nearly $6,000 on those policies despite earning less than $30,000 a year at the time, according to KABC.

Elmezayen is currently in federal custody on insurance fraud charges, but he's expected to stand trial on the murder charges once the current case is completed.

He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole or death, if convicted as charged.

California has a moratorium on the death penalty, but defendants can still be sentenced to death in court proceedings.
