Fatal stabbing victim in Walnut identified

A man found dead of stab wounds in his Walnut house after an apparent fight with his wife was identified Thursday.

George Mora, 47, was pronounced dead at the couple's house on the 21600 block of Brookside Court shortly before 9 a.m. Wednesday. Coroner's officials released his name Thursday.

Deputies were called to the house by Mora’s wife, reporting a domestic dispute. They found her sitting outside the house with stab wounds.

The woman, whose name was not released, was taken to a hospital, where she was in critical but stable condition, said Lt. Mary Leef of the L.A. County Sheriff's Department.

Detectives are investigating Mora’s death as a domestic homicide, but no one has been charged in the incident, Leef said.
