SHERMAN OAKS (CBSLA.com) — A search is underway for a man who stands accused of stabbing his wife several times in front of their 12-year-old son, resulting in her death.
Officers responded to the 4900 block of Woodman Avenue following a call of an “assault with a deadly weapon” early Sunday morning.
When they arrived, they located a 31-year-old woman suffering from stab wound to her body.
Authorities said the woman — now identified as Viridiana Teran — was transported to the hospital where she later succumbed to her wounds.
Police identified the suspect – Aurelio Teran – as the victim’s husband. He was described by police as a 5-foot-8 Latino male weighing about 125 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Adrianna Weingold reported that Teran reportedly came home early this morning and got into a fight with his wife for unknown reasons.
Officials said he stabbed her at least six times.
Police said Teran might still be armed and should be considered extremely dangerous. They said he is likely driving a gray Ford 150 with the words “VIRY House Cleaning” on the door panel.
The couple’s child was taken into protective custody.
Anyone with more information with regard to Teran’s whereabouts was asked to call 911 or detectives at (818) 374-9500.
