Officers arrived and found a 59 year old male victim with severe injuries and he was ultimately pronounced dead at the scene. At around 4 PM during the initial investigation, information was received that the suspect vehicle had been involved in a separate collision in the area of Bruella Road and Acampo Road.
The suspect, a 40 year old female of Lodi, was injured in the collision and transported to a local hospital where she is currently in serious but stable condition. At this time the victim and suspect are believed to have been in a domestic relationship, and there is currently a domestic violence restraining order in which the suspect is the restrained party and the victim is the protected party. This investigation is on-going, and it is anticipated that the suspect will be taken into custody for homicide, assault with a deadly weapon and other violations as soon as she is medically cleared for custody.
