Police: California man stabs parents, killing his mother

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, Calif. (AP) — Investigators say a Southern California man stabbed his parents following a fight, killing his mother and critically wounding his father.

Orange County sheriff’s deputies say they responded to calls about a man with a knife outside a home in San Juan Capistrano late Friday. When they arrived, they found the two victims bleeding from stab wounds.

Deputies say their son, 30-year-old Yihong Peng, ran from deputies but was arrested after a short foot chase.

His mother, 59-year-old Wei Ping Shen, died at the scene. His father was taken to the hospital with critical wounds but is expected to survive.

A knife was recovered at the scene.

Peng was booked on a murder charge and is set for a court appearance Monday. It’s unclear whether he has an attorney.
