Just after midnight July 8, a driver led CHP officers to his car at Stockton Boulevard and Florin Road, where Nedria Isaac, 45, was found unresponsive. Isaac had been shot at least once and was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Investigators with the sheriff’s department say 33-year-old Joseph Sandoval was a person of interest in the case. On Monday, Sandoval turned himself in at the Sacramento County Main Jail.

He has been charged on suspicion of involuntary manslaughter. He also faces charges related to a warrant for a prior robbery. His bail has been set at $610,000.
