FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a man in his late 30s has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing his mother to death and attacking her boyfriend at an apartment in Southern California.

Police say officers responding early Tuesday in Fullerton found the woman and man suffering from stab wounds.

The woman, in her 50s, died at a hospital. The man, in his 70s, is in critical condition.

The suspect’s name has not been released.
