LOS ANGELES (TCD) -- A 54-year-old man stands accused of fatally stabbing his 45-year-old girlfriend in front of her five children because she allegedly wanted to break up with him.
On Friday, Sept. 30, at approximately 7:55 p.m., homicide investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department responded to the 100 block of S. Townsend Avenue to a report of a stabbing, the department announced in a news release. The victim, later identified as Milagros Medina by the Sheriff's Department, was transported to the hospital, where she succumbed to her injuries.
The Sheriff's Department said the victim's boyfriend, Sergio Viilalobos-Jimenez, was identified as the suspect and later located on the 1900 block of Rosemead Boulevard. He reportedly surrendered without incident.
Family members told KTTV-TV Medina was stabbed repeatedly in front of her five children, ages 3, 11, 13, 15, and 18, along with the 18-year-old child's friend. One of the children allegedly tried to save her mother during the incident.
