According to Tuesday's publication of the Los Angeles Times, a Walnut Creek, Calif., woman has been found guilty of multiple charges for the death of her estranged husband and the family dog.
On Monday, a jury found 46-year-old Socorro Mora guilty of second-degree murder, cruelty to an animal and corporal injury to a spouse for the stabbing death of her estranged husband, 47-year-old George Mora, in 2011. In Sept. 2011, prior to murdering her husband, Socorro Mora attacked and killed the family dog, "Snowflake," after she had been ordered to move out of the couple's residence.
One month later, Mora returned and stabbed her estranged husband 33 times using three different knives. Mora also had multiple stab wounds which were later determined to be self-inflicted; she had tried to claim that she stabbed her husband in self-defense.
Mora may be sent to prison for 20 years.
