Police investigating possible homicide in Santee

A man suspected of killing a woman inside a Santee
residence was hospitalized Monday with stab wounds but expected to survive,
authorities said.

Deputies received a report of “unknown trouble” at the residence in
the 10500 block of Strathmore Drive about 9:45 p.m. Sunday, according to San
Diego County sheriff's Capt. Duncan Fraser.

On arrival, they found medics treating the injured man outside and the
woman's body inside the residence, the homicide captain said in a statement.

She was “the apparent victim of a homicide,” Fraser said without

The man was taken to an area hospital. He suffered non-life threatening
stab wounds, according to Fraser, who described the man and woman as
acquaintances. Their identities were not immediately released.

“We do not believe there are suspects outstanding at this time,”
Fraser said.

Anyone with information about the slaying was urged to call the
Sheriff's Department's Homicide Detail at (858) 974-2321 or Crime Stoppers at
(888) 580-8477.
