Police charged a man with murder after he stabbed his girlfriend to death in their Corona home early Saturday morning.

Police responded to a 911 call of an assault in progress inside 58-27 Van Cleef St. at 4:15 a.m. on Feb. 8. Upon arriving at the scene, officers found 30-year-old Juliet Ximena Galindo Puentes with multiple stab wounds to her body, according to authorities. EMS arrived and pronounced her dead at the scene.

Police recovered a knife at the scene and, while canvassing the area, responding officers apprehended 30-year-old Edwin Sarmiento, who was later confirmed to be the victim’s boyfriend. The couple lived together at the site of the stabbing.

Sarmiento was charged Saturday with murder and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon.
