SAN PABLO, Calif. (AP) - Prosecutors say a San Francisco Bay Area woman shot and killed the father of her children over a custody dispute.

Alicia Ortez was scheduled to be arraigned on Friday on charges of murder and child abduction in connection with the slaying of 43-year-old Oscar Anguiano.

Anguiano was found dead in the backyard of his San Pablo home on Monday. Authorities issued an Amber Alert after the children - ages 2, 6 and 12 - couldn’t be located.

They were later found safe with the 35-year-old Ortez and a male companion, who has also been charged with murder and child abduction.

Prosecutors tell the Contra Costa Times (https://bit.ly/1ufWMEI) Anguianao had recently been awarded custody of the children. Ortez had allegedly threatened to kill him if she didn’t win custody.
