Man fatally stabs girlfriend at Chula Vista home

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Chula Vista police arrested a man on suspicion of fatally stabbing his girlfriend, and the woman's toddler daughter, who was found at the scene, was removed from the home, a lieutenant said Sunday.

Michael Rodriguez Chavez, 22, was arrested at or near 1130 Morgan Hill Drive last night and booked on suspicion of murdering his 21-year-old girlfriend Yesenia Lynn, Chula Vista police Lt. Roxana Kennedy said.

Police were sent to the address about 7:15 p.m. Saturday on a report of a disturbance, contacted Chavez, who was inside, and eventually got him to surrender, she said.

When police entered the home, they found Lynn fatally stabbed, she said. Lynn's toddler daughter, who was found inside the home unharmed, was taken into protective custody, Kennedy said.

It was unclear if Chavez was the father of the child.
