Mother Killed Thanksgiving Morning in Reseda, Boyfriend Arrested

A woman was killed in Reseda Thanksgiving morning and her boyfriend, the father of her 8-year-old child, was arrested and booked on suspicion of murder, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Police said Ricardo Sauz, 35, and the 30-year-old victim, whose name is being withheld pending notification of next of kin, had a history of domestic violence.

The incident was reported in the 7500 block of Enfield Avenue around 10:50 a.m.

The woman was believed to have been killed by blunt force injuries on Thanksgiving morning.

Neighbors said Sauz was "rolling on the dirt and pounding" and making a scene at about the time of the 911 call.

Sauz now faces murder charges with his bail set at $2 million.

Anyone with information is asked to call LAPD Detective John Doerbecker at 818-374-9550.
