LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Arraignment is scheduled tomorrow for a man who allegedly stabbed his father to death and wounded his mother in Playa del Rey.
Alonzo Mansel, 23, is being held in lieu of $3 million bail. He is charged with one count each of murder and attempted murder.
Police responded at 6 p.m. Jan. 11 to a home in the 200 block of Redlands Street, near Vista Del Mar, after a report that two people had been stabbed. A search began for the suspect, and police identified a suspect they say matched witnesses' descriptions and had driven away from the scene.
The suspect crashed a car onto a sidewalk at the intersection of Sepulveda Boulevard and Manchester Avenue in Westchester and tried to run from officers, but they reportedly found him hiding in an alley near an IHOP restaurant.
The fatally injured victim was subsequently identified as Harvey Lee Huddleston, 77, of Playa del Rey. The Los Angeles Times reported that Huddleston was Mansel's stepfather.
