Los Angeles mother allegedly decapitated by her own daughter: 'There's blood on that side, there's blood on the floor'

Police discovered a grisly crime scene after a Los Angeles County mother was allegedly decapitated by her own daughter.

Around 5 p.m. on Sunday, police responded to a call regarding a stabbing at a residence in El Monte, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

Officers found 44-year-old Jacqueline Perez stabbed to death. She had suffered multiple stab wounds, and was allegedly decapitated.

KABC reported that officers removed a head from a trash can, as seen by the network's news helicopter.

Authorities pronounced the victim deceased at the nightmarish scene.

According to Law & Crime, "Neighbors and family members described the gruesome scene where the alleged decapitation took place. There was a trail of bloody footprints on the driveway coming from the home’s front door near decorations from a recent child’s birthday party."

Neighbor Hector Manzo told KABC, "There’s blood on that side, there's blood on the floor."

The victim’s brother, Julio Lopez, said he heard his 11-year-old nephew scream. The boy raced out of the victim's house with his shirt soaking in blood.

"Maybe they argued," he said. "To tell you the truth, I don’t know."

Outside of the home, police arrested Kimberly Monique Gonzalez – the 25-year-old daughter of Perez. The murder suspect was covered in blood, according to police.

Police recovered a possible murder weapon, but did not elaborate.

Gonzalez was charged with one count of murder and one count of assault with a deadly weapon. If convicted, Gonzalez faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Gonzalez is currently held on a $2 million bail in the Los Angeles County Jail.

Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón called the incident an "extraordinarily violent act."

"My heart goes out to the family and loved ones who have been shattered by this unimaginable tragedy. The pain and grief they must be experiencing is unimaginable," Gascón said in a statement.

"This was an extraordinarily violent act which has had a profound impact on our community," he added. "We are fully committed to seeking justice on behalf of the victim and our dedicated team will work tirelessly to bring clarity and closure to this heartbreaking case."
