Police responded to a domestic abuse call at 2 a.m. this morning in the 4700 block of Myrtle Street and found one woman dead and one seriously injured with stab wounds in her upper torso.

The LA Times reports that deputies on the scene arrested the dead woman's boyfriend but remain unclear about the relationship between the two women. Authorities spoke earlier today about what they know so far:

The slain woman was involved in "some type of argument with her boyfriend, possibly over a breakup," Lt. Dan Rosenberg told NBC4 today. "The argument got violent and we believe he stabbed her."
