Just after 11 p.m. Saturday, sheriff’s dispatchers received a call regarding an apparent stabbing at a Woodrick Way home.

When officers responded to the scene, they found a 31-year-old man suffering from a stab wound in the upper torso. After deputies attempted life-saving measures, the victim was taken to a nearby hospital, where he later died.

Jacob Sanabira, 21, was later arrested Sunday morning and charged on suspicion of murdering his mother’s 31-year-old boyfriend.

According to the sheriff’s department, Sanabria, his mother and her boyfriend lived together.

The sheriff’s department says it appears the 21-year-old stabbed his mother’s boyfriend in a seemingly unprovoked attack.

The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department has yet to release the identity of the victim, pending notification of family.
