Sheriff’s homicide detectives assisted Baldwin Park Police in investigating an outbreak of violence that left a 31-year-old man stabbed to death and his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend hospitalized with knife wounds to her upper body.

The body of Kenneth Williams was found in the garage of a home in the 4700 block of Maine Avenue in Baldwin Park, said Deputy Ryan Rouzan of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Information Bureau. Williams was pronounced dead at the scene.

The stabbing was reported at 5:26 p.m. Thursday, Rouzan said. Deputies had responded to the 4700 block of Maine Avenue, where they found Juanita Solares sitting on her porch suffering from stab wounds to her her upper chest. Solares was transported to a hospital for treatment.

According to sheriff’s detectives, Williams had met Solares in the parking lot of a Yum Yum Donuts at 4351 Maine Ave., where he allegedly forced her into his car, a black Toyota Prius. Williams then allegedly took her to his home against her will and punched Solares in the face while he was driving.

After Williams parked his car in his garage, he allegedly kept beating Solares, according to Deputy Tina Schrader. Solares finally got out of the car and was then stabbed several times. She ran to a neighbor’s house, Schrader said, after seeing Williams laying next to his car with what appeared to be a self-inflicted stab wound to his chest.

A knife was recovered at the scene by detectives, Schrader said.

There was no word yet from authorities about what led up to the confrontation between Williams and Solares. The investigation was continuing, according to Schrader.
