Woman beaten inside her El Cajon home

EL CAJON (CNS) – Detectives worked Friday to determine who assaulted a 32- year-old East County woman at her home, leaving her so severely injured she was not expected to survive.

Shaima Alawadi's 17-year-old daughter found her unconscious in the dining room of her residence on Skyview Street in El Cajon about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, according to police.

“Based on the type of injuries Alawadi sustained and other evidence retrieved at the scene, this case is being investigated as a homicide,” Lt. Steve Shakowski said.

He declined to disclose the nature of the victim's injuries or any further details about the crime scene.
