A young California mother of two was beheaded by her former boyfriend outside her San Carlos apartment Thursday morning.
According to reports, the incident occurred around 11:50 a.m. when officers received calls about a woman being beheaded by a man outside her apartment on Magnolia Avenue and Laurel Street.
When officers arrived they found the victim, 27 year old Karina Castro. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The 33 year old suspect, Jose Rafael Solano Landaeta, fled on foot before officers arrived but returned back to the scene unarmed.
It was said that Landaeta was the father of Castro’s 1 year old child and that the two had been having a domestic dispute.
There were two young children inside the home ages 1 and 7 that were placed in the care of Child Protective Services.
Landaeta was booked into the San Mateo County Jail with no bail. His arraignment is scheduled for Monday.
