Reno Stabbing

A 32-year-old Reno man has been arrested after police say he tried to kill his girlfriend's mother.

Melvin Ducero has been charged with attempted homicide, domestic
battery, battery with a deadly weapon and crimes against the elderly.

Reno police say they found the mother of Ducero's live-in girlfriend had been stabbed several times when they responded to a domestic disturbance just before 11 o'clock last night (in the 400 block of Dartmoor Circle).

The woman was transported to Renown Medical Center where she
remains in critical condition.
