An elementary school teacher accused of killing his estranged wife in West Hills was arrested in San Bernardino County shortly after midnight, police tell the Weekly.

Details from LAPD headquarters were scarce, but reports indicate that 46-year-old Michael Rodney Kane was tracked to a motel room in Joshua Tree where …

… cops busted down the door and nabbed him.

Police told KTLA news they served a search warrant at a relative's house in San Bernardino County and found the suspect's car nearby. Somehow the investigation led to the motel room.

Kane is said to have had a laceration on his neck covered by a bandage.

The L.A. Unified School District Teacher is alleged to have gone to the home of his estranged wife, busted in and attacked her about 7:50 a.m. Saturday, police said.

KNX 1070 Newsradio said that, with two children home, the suspect chased her into the street and fatally stabbed here there.

When cops arrived they found 43-year-old Michelle Ann Kane on the ground with multiple stab wounds, according to an LAPD statement.

The department told us they'd have more details on the arrest this afternoon.
