L.A. Man Arrested in Fatal Stabbings of Mother, 6-Year-Old Nephew


LOS ANGELES(CNS) - A man accused of fatally stabbing his mother and 6-year-old nephew last month was being held this morning on more than $5 million bail.

David Cordoba, 26, was taken into custody about 10 p.m. Wednesday at Third and Berendo streets, near Vermont Avenue, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Cordoba is accused of killing 60-year-old Maria Rodas-Lemus and Alan Cordova-Robles during a family dispute on Dec.21.

Police were called about 10:30 that night to conduct a welfare check at a home in the 1800 block of 11th Place, where Cordoba lived with his mother. When they arrived, they found the boy and his grandmother dead, LAPD officials said.

Police said Cordoba also allegedly stabbed a third family member, who was taken to a hospital with injuries of undisclosed severity.
