There are new details in the shocking murder of a millionaire tech investor inside his Silicon Valley home.

Raveesh Kumra, 66, a wealthy former owner of a Saratoga winery, was found dead in his Monte Sereno home in November 2012 from asphyxiation after he was bound and gagged during a late night home invasion and robbery of cash and valuables, prosecutors said.

Our media partner, the San Jose Mercury News, reports: One of those charged in the killing, believed Kumra had stolen $30,000 from him and that may have been the motive.

A prostitute and two others are charged in Kumra's death and are being held without bail.
