A mother of two was allegedly beheaded by her ex-lover, leaving witnesses terrified.
The horrifying incident happened in broad daylight on September 8th on a street in the Bay Area, California.
Cops said the victim, in his 20s, was in a relationship with the suspect, identified as Jose Solano Landaeta.
Police told KGO-TV that the woman obtained a restraining order against Landaeta months before she died.
Police rushed to the scene after receiving reports that a woman’s head had been “taken off” with a sword, ABC7 reports.
One report said: “Children are there, afraid to come … want their mother.”
The mother’s children, seven and one, did not witness the murder, officials said.
Lt. Eamon Allen of the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office said the youths were at her home.
Landaeta has been arrested and the police are being advised.
Officers also revealed that the gun used was not found.
Allen described the incident as a “tragedy,” and locals were shocked.
He told reporters, “Anytime someone loses their life, it’s certainly a tragedy.”
