Woman found stabbed to death inside Serra Mesa home

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A Serra Mesa woman was found stabbed to death in her home Monday, prompting a search for her husband, who disappeared after allegedly confessing to a relative that he'd killed his wife.

Officers conducting a welfare check at the Monette Drive home of 51-year-old Caridad Hendrix found her body in a bedroom about 5:45 a.m., according to San Diego police.

The woman's 61-year-old husband, Marquin Anthony Hendrix, allegedly told a family member about the slaying before "fleeing to an unknown location," SDPD Sgt. Bryan Pendleton said.

"He kind of hinted that he was suicidal, and he told his brother that he had killed his wife," Pendleton said.

The suspect was last seen driving through Linda Vista in a maroon 2004 Chrysler Crossfire, California license number 5MFB596.

"We want to get him in custody as quick as possible, before ... he hurts someone else," Pendleton said, adding that none of the suspect's relatives or friends contacted by detectives seem "to have an idea where he would be at this point."

Police released no suspected motive for the killing.
