A man and a woman are each being held on $1 million bond after authorities say they stabbed a woman to death during a dispute over a parking space, KTLA reports.
Reggie Cervantes, 22, and Brenda Rangel, 19, both of South Los Angeles, are charged in the murder of Elizabeth Yanez, 43, of Whittier, Calif.
It happened at about 9:30 p.m. Friday at the Santa Fe Springs Swap Meet located at 13000 block of Alondra Boulevard.
When officers responded to a fight in the swap meet parking lot, they found Yanez lying on the ground with multiple stab wounds to her neck and back, police said.
Yanez, whose two adult children witnessed the attack, was transported to UCI Medical Center where she later died.
“It doesn’t make sense to me,” daughter Renee Crable told KTLA. “For a parking space, it was just uncalled for. I mean I just don’t understand how … I’m supposed to go on with my life now.”
According to KTLA, detectives were able to get fingerprints from the Yanez’s car which led to the arrests Cervante and Rangel.
