LAGUNA HILLS (CBSLA.com) — A family tragedy in Orange County Thursday night.

As KCAL9/CBS2’s Stacey Butler reports, a 23-year-old mother of three was stabbed to death in her Laguna Hills apartment.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies said they had a “person of interest” in custody.

Neighbors and friends said that they saw the husband being taken in handcuffs into a police cruiser but detectives would not confirm that the husband was in custody.

Deputies were called to conduct a welfare check on a resident at an apartment building at Moulton and Alicia parkways about 2:30 p.m. and found the woman dead, according to Jaimee Blashaw of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.
