The grandson of a 75 year old Ventura County woman is behind bars today for her murder.
Simi Valley Police were called to the 1500 block of Patricia Avenue around four Sunday afternoon by worried relatives, who had been unable to reach Isabel Hernandez. Officers forced their way inside her apartment, where they found her body.
Detectives say as a part of the investigation, they questioned her grandson, Gustavo Rios. They say they then arrested the 23 year old for the killing.
Investigators say it appears Hernandez had been stabbed to death, but an autopsy is still pending. They’re not talking about what they think the motive was in the murder.
Police say Rios lived in the Simi Valley area, but was a transient.
