SHERMAN OAKS (CNS) - A man suspected of fatally stabbing his wife in front of their 12-year-old son in Sherman Oaks was taken into custody in Ventura County, Los Angeles police announced Monday.
A Ventura County sheriff's sergeant who responded to a "pedestrian on the roadway'' call recognized Aurelio Teran as the suspect being sought in the stabbing death of his wife, the Los Angeles Police Department reported.
Teran, 39, was transported to a local hospital, according to the LAPD, but his condition was unknown.
He was arrested around 8 a.m. at the hospital in Ventura County, said Sgt. Michael Goldberg of the LAPD's Van Nuys station, who said he had no other information.
Officers who responded to a report of an assault with a deadly weapon about 6:15 a.m. Sunday in the 4900 block of Woodman Avenue found the 31-year-old victim, whose name had not been released as of late Monday morning, suffering from stab wounds, said Officer Norma Eisenman of the LAPD's Media Relations Section.
Paramedics rushed the woman to an area hospital, where she later died, Eisenman said. Police have not speculated on a motive for the stabbing.
The son was not physically injured, Eisenman said.
