Circumstances of Walnut double stabbing still unknown

WALNUT — A woman critically injured in stabbing that left her estranged husband dead was hospitalized in stable condition Friday, however the circumstances of the incident remained a mystery, authorities said.
Socorra Mora, 43, was found seriously wounded in the front yard of her estranged husband’s home in the 21600 block of Brookside Court shortly after she called 9-1-1 to report a domestic violence incident, Lt. Matt Burson of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau said.
Her husband, 47-year-old George Mora, was found stabbed inside the home and pronounced dead, officials said.
While investigators have said it appears the stabbing involved only Socorra and George Mora, it was not clear what took place or who may have been the aggressor in the confrontation.
Because of Socorra Mora’s medical condition, “We haven’t had a real opportunity to talk to her,” Burson said.
Coroner’s officials planned an autopsy Saturday to determine George Mora’s official cause of death, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner’s Assistant Chief of Operations Ed Winter said.
The couple had four children who lived with their father, officials said. None were home at the time of the stabbings, and they had been placed with other family members following the incident.
