JOSHUA TREE (CBSLA.com) — An LAUSD elementary school teacher accused of stabbing his wife to death outside of a San Fernando Valley home was arrested Monday after two days on the run.
Michael Rodney Kane, 46, was arrested at 12:05 a.m. at a motel in Joshua Tree, officials with the Los Angeles and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s departments said.
Authorities found Kane’s vehicle in Yucca Valley Sunday and later tracked him to the motel.
“The door was locked from the inside. Based on the seriousness of the crime and us having information that the suspect was seriously injured, for his safety and well being, the door was kicked in and he was taken into custody,” Det. Dave Patek told KNX 1070’s John Baird.
