ANAHEIM (CBS) — A 30-year-old Anaheim man is in custody on suspicion of killing his wife in front of their child on Christmas Day.
Sgt. Bob Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department says officers were called to an apartment on the 200 block of Laxore Street near Lincoln Avenue around 9:20 a.m. Sunday.
“They located a woman in her twenties who was in need of medical attention,” says Dunn. “They transported her to a local hospital, and she was pronounced dead shortly after her arrival.”
The victim’s husband, William Wallace, was taken into custody for murder after detectives interviewed family members who were present at the couple’s residence.
Dunn says the motive is still unknown, but neighbors say the couple argued often.
Detectives are awaiting the coroner’s report to determine the cause of death.
Wallace is being held at the Anaheim jail without bail.
