SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Sheriff's deputies and K-9 teams continue to search a San Jose neighborhood for a man a sheriff's spokesman is describing as a "person of interest" after a 1-year-old boy and a 40-year-old woman were stabbed to death in a home in an unincorporated part of the city.
Santa Clara County sheriff's spokesman Kurtis Stenderup says the boy, the woman and a 3-year-old girl were found stabbed by a family member who entered the home around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday.
The 3-year-old girl was taken to the hospital. Her condition was not known.
Authorities are looking for a man identified as 27-year-old Ruben Ramirez - a relative of the victims - in connection with the attack.
Stenderup says Ramirez suffers from mental health problems, and that authorities have had prior contact with him.
