PLACER COUNTY, CA - A woman is dead after a family dispute escalated into a stabbing Wednesday afternoon; deputies arrested the woman's daughter in connection to the death.
Maria Bejenariu, 61, died at Sutter Roseville Medical Center after being found in the backyard of her home on Andressen Road around 1 p.m., Placer County sheriff's spokesperson Dena Erwin said.
Bejenariu's daughter Ana Maria Bejenariu, 32, was also found at the home and arrested.
Deputies were responding to a domestic dispute call when they arrived at the home Wednesday. Authorities have been out to the home several times before for domestic disturbance calls. They described Ana Bejenariu as having "mental issues."
The sheriff's department still doesn't know what led up to the deadly stabbing.
"We get mad at each other and stuff, but to take somebody's life," neighbor Joe Schmidt said. "You can never imagine the circumstances where you get to that point."
Erwin said the daughter was booked into Placer County Jail on one count of murder.
