A 34-year-old woman suspected of stabbing her partner to death in their apartment in Bell Gardens Wednesday was taken into custody.

Detectives went to the apartment in the 6200 block of Agra Street, near Bell Gardens High School, at about 8:30 a.m. and found a woman suffering from multiple stab wounds, according to Deputy Grace Medrano of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau.

The 34-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name was not released pending notification of her next of kin.

Witnesses in the apartment building heard a “loud commotion” in the complex just before the woman was found dead, Medrano said.

Medrano announced at about 7:55 p.m. that the victim’s live-in partner was arrested on suspicion of the stabbing and was booked into the Bell Gardens Police Department jail for murder. Her name was not immediately released.

Her bail was set at $1 million and her arraignment was scheduled for Friday at the Downey Courthouse.
