Authorities Wednesday issued a renewed call for the public to help locate a man accused of killing his mother and 6-year-old nephew in a Westlake district apartment.

David Cordoba, 26, is considered armed and dangerous, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Officers found the bodies at 10:25 p.m. on Dec. 21 when they went to the 1800 block of West 11th Place, near Alvarado Street and Olympic Boulevard, on a requested welfare check, the LAPD said.

The Los Angeles County coroner’s office identified the victims as Maria Rodas-Lemus, 60, and Alan Cordova-Robles, 6, both of Los Angeles. The woman was the boy’s grandmother.

Police said Cordoba stabbed his mother and nephew during a dispute. Cordoba also stabbed a third family member, who was taken to a hospital, according to police. That victim’s condition was not available.

Cordoba, who fled the scene, was described by police as 5-feet-5 inches tall and 140 pounds with a tattoo on his left forearm.

Anyone with information on the killings can call LAPD’s Central Bureau Homicide Unit at 213-486-8700 or report a tip anonymously at 1-800-222-8477.
