Criminal charges were filed Friday against a Sherman Oaks man who allegedly gunned down his common-law wife and wounded her father early on New Year’s Day in Compton.

Eduardo Ubiarco, 37, is charged with one count each of murder and attempted murder, along with allegations that he personally used and discharged a handgun.

Ubiarco’s common-law wife was shot at 12:38 a.m. Wednesday in the 2200 block of West 154th Street and died at a hospital, and her father survived gunshot wounds to his upper body, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Ubiarco was arrested that day by deputies and has remained in custody since then.

Authorities have not announced a motive for the shooting.
