Police said Armando Vazquez, 62, was found “unresponsive and bleeding on the floor” from his home in the 8600 block of Arlington Avenue, when she returned home around 2:35 p.m.
Paramedics pronounced Vasquez dead at the scene.
During the investigation, authorities discovered that Vasquez’s 21-year-old son, Jair Armando Vasquez, “physically assaulted” his father and “escaped in the victim’s car” to Newport Beach, where he was arrested later that day, according to police.
Police said the younger Vazquez is being held on $1 million bail at the Robert Presley Detention Center, and faces charges of murder and robbery.
The police did not have any further details of her release, but an investigation is underway.
