A murderous woman slashing suspect was in custody Sunday in the killing of her male “acquaintance” in his Costa Mesa apartment, authorities said.

Costa Mesa police officers and firefighters responded to multiple calls of a possible stabbing at that residence, Costa Mesa Police spokeswoman Roxi Fyad said.

“When officers arrived they were directed by several subjects into a two-story apartment complex,” she said. “Upon entering, officers located an unresponsive male in his 30s with severe injuries inside the residence.”

Police interviewed occupants of the residence and recovered the weapon used in the stabbing, Fyad said.

The name of the female suspect was not released due to the continuing investigation and the victim’s name was not released pending notification of his relatives, Fyad said.

It was reported about 5:20 a.m. Saturday in the 600 block of Shasta Lane, according to Fyad.

There were no other details provided by authorities, including the type of relationship between the two, a possible motive and what type of weapon was used.
