A soccer coach was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing an entire family and raping a 13-year-old boy, according to police in Switzerland.

Schafisheim police said that they have arrested 33-year-old Thomas N., after being accused of raping the 13-year-old boy in front of his mother.

N., who is a soccer coach for children, acted for financial and sexual motives in the killing of 48-year-old Carla Schauer, her 13 and 19-year-old sons and the 19-year-old man’s 21-year-old girlfriend.

According to the police investigation, the suspect persuaded Schauer to let him into her home. He then tied up the family members and forced her to withdraw about $11,000 from a bank.

He then raped her 13-year-old son before killing all four by cutting their throats and setting fire to the house. Police said that fingerprints and DNA at the scene matched the suspect.

Police said the arrest of the suspect may have prevented more murders. The suspect worked as a coach for the FC Sarmenstorf soccer club.
