Woman stabbed to death by boyfriend; son injured [Updated]

A 48-year-old woman was fatally stabbed by her boyfriend late Saturday in Boyle Heights while her 23-year-old son suffered a minor injury trying to protect her, authorities said.

The stabbing occurred about midnight in the 2800 block of Fairmount Street, said Los Angeles Police Sgt. Richard Sanchez. The woman, whose name was not given, was taken to County-USC Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

Her son received a superficial wound to the face, Sanchez said. The suspect, who was not identified, was taken into custody.

[Updated, 1:42 p.m.: The victim was identified as Narda Huerta of Los Angeles. LAPD Sgt. Richard Sanchez said the suspect was visiting Huerta at her home when the two became involved in a dispute. Huerta was stabbed in the neck. "The suspect also stabbed the victim's son who intervened and managed to disarm and subdue the suspect until police arrival," Sanchez said. A small knife was recovered from the scene.]

"Brothers and sisters, we do not want you to be uninformed about those who sleep in death, so that you do not grieve like the rest of mankind, who have no hope. For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him." 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14

The righteous perish,
and no one takes it to heart;
the devout are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil.
Those who walk uprightly
enter into peace;
they find rest as they lie in death.
Isaiah 57:1-2

Tia Narda, we will miss you so much. Words cannot even describe the pain this has caused everyone. But you can guarantee that he will not get away with what he has done to you. We love you Tia and may you rest in peace.

My most heart felt condolences go out to Narda's children and family. I only had the privilege to know her from work but her lively spirit and loving personality will be missed by many. I'm truly sorry.

And just how your son: said you will always live in our hearts. Dios me la bendiga y descanse en el senor. WE LOVE YOU TIA NARDA.
