HOUSTON — Authorities say a 32-year-old woman was covered in blood when she was arrested in the apparent stabbing death of her mother.
Police say 58-year-old Virginia Gonzales was found dead at a home Sunday morning. Her daughter, Veronica Gonzales, was booked into jail Sunday on a murder charge.
Stephen Jimenez, a homicide investigator, says officers were called to the scene when the daughter turned up at a friend’s house bloody and “in distress.” Police then swarmed the suspect’s home, about 2 miles away, and found the victim.
No other suspects are sought in the slaying. Police have not released any information on a motive.
Veronica Gonzales did not have any major injuries. She remained in jail in Houston Sunday. Bond hadn’t been set. Jail records didn’t list an attorney for her.
