SoCal Man Sought In Fatal Stabbing With Sword

LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) - Deputies are looking for a man suspected of stabbing his live-in girlfriend to death with a sword in front of the couple's four young children at their home in northern Los Angeles County.

Sheriff's Deputy Luis Castro says Jesus Humberto Canales is wanted in connection with early Saturday's stabbing death of Lucy Preciado, who was found dead at the couple's Lancaster home.

Castro says Canales was last seen driving away in a dark-colored
vehicle. He says be believes the children are being cared for by a
family member.

Authorities say the suspected murder weapon, a large sword, was
recovered at the scene, but that Canales should be considered armed
and dangerous and may have a handgun.
