Man charged with murder in girlfriend’s death

Posted: Updated:

EL CAJON (CNS) - A young man arrested this week for allegedly gravely wounding his teenage wife in an assault at an East County home will be charged with murder Friday following the woman's death in a hospital, authorities reported.

Roshawn Lamar Broadnax, 20, was jailed Tuesday afternoon after deputies responding to a reported assault in the 9500 block of Piedmont Street in Spring Valley found him tending to 19-year-old Deazjnae Banks, sheriff's Lt. Larry Nesbit said.

Paramedics took Banks to Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego where she was admitted in critical condition. Physicians removed her from life-support equipment about 9:30 p.m. Thursday, according to Nesbit.

Sheriff's officials have withheld the cause of Banks's death and details on what might have led to the alleged slaying.

Broadnax is scheduled to be arraigned in El Cajon Friday afternoon.
