A woman in her 70s was found stabbed to death at her Lake Forest home on Wednesday, officials said.
A woman in her 30s, who also lives in the home, has been detained and was being interviewed by homicide detectives, Carrie Braun, spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, said.
Few details were released, but Braun said someone in the house, a third occupant, called authorities at 1:50 a.m. reporting unknown problems.
When officers arrived, they found the victim with multiple stab wounds. She was pronounced dead on the spot.
No one else in the home was injured.
Investigators have obtained a search warrant to search the home, Braun said. She refused to tell the relationship between the victim and the woman who was being held.
