Narda Huerta, L.A. Homicide No. 52: Woman Stabbed to Death by Alleged Boyfriend; Sons Tried to Save Her
Her sons pulled the stabber off her and wrestled him to the ground, but Narda Huerta was already seeping blood from her neck. It was just past midnight on March 6 in a residence on the 2800 block of Fairmont Street in Boyle Heights when the 48-year-old Latina women was stabbed.
Huerta's boyfriend was visiting her home, when the two got into an argument that ended with the suspect allegedly stabbing her in the neck.
According to LAPD officials, Huerta's two sons pinned the suspect to the ground. When police arrived, a larger group of men were holding down the man.
ABC-LA reported that the two sons, one of whom suffered a superficial knife wound to the forward when he was trying to protect his mother, were trying to give their mother medical aid when paramedics arrived.
