SAN JOSE (KTVU) -- Two sons of a couple found fatally shot at a home in San Jose's Evergreen neighborhood Sunday have both been charged with murder, prosecutors said Friday.
The bodies of Shamima Rabbi, 57, and her husband, Golam Rabbi, were found last weekend in their home in the Evergreen neighborhood, located in the 3000 block of Lucas Court in San Jose. Golam was shot more than a dozen times. His wife was shot once in the head, according to Assistant District Attorney Matt Braker.

Investigators said no other suspects are being sought in connection with the case.
The Rabbis moved to San Jose from Bangladesh over 30 years ago. The couple's slaying has shocked residents in their upscale neighborhood.
In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, the eldest of the boys told the newspaper that his younger brother was not involved in the crime and the real story would emerge during trial.
Both brothers then went to an anime convention in Oakland.Authorities say writing on the walls of the home appeared to be from two different authors and that
one set of handwriting appeared to be Omar's.
Police continue to investigate the motive.
"I'll simply state, that they're working tirelessly to answer those questions and to ensure that both of these victims receive justice," says Braker.A few former classmates of Hasib's showed up to court, still in disbelief about what happened.
"Back in the day he used to be made fun of. I'm shocked in a way. But I wouldn’t say I'm completely shocked," says Shawn Ladao, who went to school with Hasib.
The brothers are being held without bail. A preliminary hearing is set for May 9th.
