A young mother was beheaded in the middle of a San Carlos, California street in the early afternoon on Thursday as her children watched.
According to local news the children, two girls ages 1 and 7, were on the scene saying they "want their mom" after she was cut down by suspect Jose Landaeta Solano, who was arrested after returning to the location.
Solano and the unidentified woman were in a relationship and authorities say there was a history of complaints and domestic violence incidents at the household. The deceased mother had been granted a temporary restraining order against Solano in April.
Child Protective Services (CPS) took the two kids into custody and officials also removed a dog and two cats from the home.
The decapitation happened near Laurel Street and Magnolia Avenue in San Carlos, which is located in California's silicon valley. Police deputies were flagged down around 11:50 am about a domestic violence incident and reports were coming in around 12:15 pm of the woman's head being chopped off and of the children on scene.
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office said that they are still looking for the weapons, which they believe to be a samurai sword.
"Anytime someone loses their life, it's certainly a tragedy," San Mateo County Sheriff's Office Lt. Eamonn Allen said of the incident. "As far as the shocking nature of it, I do know that the deputies that first arrived on scene were a little beset by the scene. We are providing them peer support. We are also providing support for the witnesses that were on scene as well because there were several civilian witnesses."
According to local ABC news, neighbor Chapele Thorborne said, "The head was underneath the car and she was laying in the back of the car- just severed. And they covered her up." Thorborne added. "It was kind of a shock, you know. This is a nice neighborhood. So, it’s a shock."
NBC Bay Area reports that Solano " has an extensive, violent criminal past and a history of mental illness."
