Dispute Leads to Murder

Los Angeles police are investigating the death of a Los Angeles woman after responding to a domestic dispute call just after midnight last Sunday.

When LAPD Hollenbeck patrol officers arrived at the home in the 2800 block of Fairmount Street, they saw a group of men holding down an older man who appeared to be the suspect. One of the men had been cut.

A woman was lying on the floor unresponsive suffering from a stab wound, according to police. Officers took the suspect into custody.

LAFD rescue personnel transported both victims to a local hospital where the woman was pronounced dead and the man was treated and released.  The woman was later identified as 48-year-old Narda Huerta.

Hollenbeck detectives say the suspect was Huerta’s boyfriend. The two got into a fight, and that’s when the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed Huerta.  A relative of the victim tried to intervene, and was also stabbed, but still managed to wrestle away the knife, said police.

The suspect, whose name was not immediately released, was arrested and booked for murder.
