Wife Stabs Husband to Death NR10398rh

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Harbor Homicide detectives are investigating the stabbing death of a 36-year-old man in the city of Wilmington.

On August 10, 2010, at around 12:40 a.m., a married couple was inside a hotel room in the 800 block of Watson Avenue and became involved in an argument. When the dispute escalated, Angelina Sevilla stabbed Luis Sevilla in the chest several times.  After Luis was stabbed with a knife, he walked out of the hotel, got into his car and drove away from the location. He drove several blocks away when his vehicle collided with a light pole and parked car.  

Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the scene of the traffic collision and discovered Luis suffering from stab wounds.  Paramedics worked on the victim, but he died from his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The victim’s 28-year-old wife/suspect was found walking out of another room within the hotel where she was taken into custody and booked for murder.  Detectives have not determined what caused the stabbing.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Harbor Area Homicide Detectives David Alvarez or Isidro Rodriguez at 310-726-7879 or 310-726-7880.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
