An enraged father stabbed to death his 14-year-old daughter's 27-year-old boyfriend after the man said he wanted to take her to Mexico

Associated Press:

Efrain Ramos, 38, and two other people were arrested Tuesday for investigation of murder in the killing of Anselmo Sanchez-Reyes, whose body remained unidentified for a week after it was found.

"It's a very interesting case," LAPD homicide detective Mike Coffey said.

The victim's body didn't have any identification when it was found Feb. 12 on a North Hollywood street. Three days later, a Van Nuys resident reported his brother was missing, and police identified him as Sanchez-Reyes.

Police learned he often drank with Ramos and Ramos' sister, Maria, who told investigators neither she nor her brother were happy that Sanchez-Reyes was dating the girl.

Authorities allege that Sanchez-Reyes was stabbed to death while he and Efrain Ramos fought in the Ramos' apartment.

Efrain Ramos, Maria Ramos, 29, and a family friend, Dolores Gomez, 27, were arrested for investigation of murder. The women allegedly helped remove Sanchez-Reyes' body from the apartment and put it in a vehicle.

Efrain Ramos is being held without bail, while the women are being held on $1 million bail each.
