A woman was fatally stabbed Thursday in the Santa Clarita area, and authorities were looking for her estranged husband in an SUV with Washington license plates.
The stabbing occurred about 5:10 a.m. in the 22800 block of Fir Court, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
The woman died at a hospital, according to the sheriff’s department. Information on her identity was not immediately available.
Sheriff’s Lt. Barry Hall told CBS2, “Prior to dying, she identified her estranged husband, who we are naming as James Matthew Dorsey, as the person who stabbed her.”
The station reported that two children were in the home at the time of the attack.
Dorsey, 41, of Washington may be driving a 2008 Saturn SUV with Washington plates.
“The information we have right now is that he’s not even living in the state, and they were certainly estranged, he’s not even welcome at the house — he probably forced his way through the door at the back,” Hall said.
