COMPTON (CNS) - A man who allegedly fatally stabbed his girlfriend in an unincorporated area bordering Compton and then fled to Mexico pleaded not guilty today to a murder charge.
Victor Hugo Sosa, 25, is charged with the killing of Daisy Delao, who was found dead Feb. 23 in an alleyway in the 1400 block of Long Beach Boulevard, between Alondra and Greenleaf boulevards.
Investigators identified Delao's boyfriend as the suspected killer and said he fled the scene before authorities arrived. No motive was provided for the stabbing.
Authorities in Rosarito, Mexico, arrested Sosa on Friday morning after working on information received from a tip, according to Deputy Shawn Du Busky of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
The FBI was notified of Sosa's arrest and subsequently took him into custody. He was later turned over to sheriff's personnel.
Sosa has remained jailed since then in lieu of $2 million bail.
He is due back in a Compton courtroom July 28, when a date is scheduled to be set for a hearing to determine if there is sufficient evidence to allow the case against him to proceed to trial.
