A mother stabbed to death in Sherman Oaks early Sunday had hours earlier obtained an emergency protective order out of fear her husband would attack her.
Viridiana Sarahi Teran was even escorted back to her apartment in the 4900 block of Woodman Avenue by two LAPD officers who made sure Teran’s husband was not inside.
The LAPD says the officers waited while Teran and her 12-year-old son collected some clothing and left. Teran said she planned to spend the night at a motel, according to police.
Teran apparently returned to the apartment and was attacked in her bedroom around 6:00 a.m. Sunday.
The son escaped and went for help.
Almost immediately LAPD detectives publicized a photo of Teran’s husband, who was recognized by a Ventura County Sheriff’s sergeant early Monday morning.

That’s when Aurelio Teran was hit by a car in Camarillo in what investigators suspect was a failed suicide attempt, police said.
The husband was booked on suspicion of murder and was expected to recover at a hospital.
