VISTA (CNS) - A gang member accused of breaking into his ex-girlfriend's townhome in Escondido and fatally stabbing her current boyfriend is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday on murder charges.

Christopher James Selena, 41, is expected to be formally charged in connection with the stabbing death early Saturday.

Police said Selena's ex-girlfriend fled to a friend's house after waking up to find Selena standing near her bloody, unconscious boyfriend in her townhome in the 800 block of N. Fig Street.

The victim was pronounced dead around 4:45 a.m. Selena was arrested six hours later at his place of work.

Selena's ex-girlfriend had taken out a domestic-violence restraining order against him, authorities said.
