Murder In Santa Monica: Albertson’s Employee Stabbed To Death At Checkout:

A 46-year-old woman working at Albertson’s Market at 3105 Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica was stabbed between 20 and 30 times just after 3 p.m. yesterday. She died this morning in hospital at 2:22 a.m.

Santa Monica Police Department’s Sgt. Richard Lewis said officers responded to multiple 911 calls at 3:24 p.m. which reported a check-out employee was being repeatedly stabbed by a black male.

Lewis said the suspect was standing behind her and she actually acknowledged him to some degree.

“I don’t know what was said. The attack happened shortly there after,” Lewis said. “She was stabbed a total between 20 and 30 times. It was some kind of pocket knife, it is described many ways, it wasn’t that big like a butcher knife, it was a pocket type knife.”

Upon arrival at the store, officers found the female victim had stab wounds around the head, neck and upper torso, but was still conscious.

Lewis said the woman was transported quickly to a local hospital trauma center.

“She underwent several hours of surgery and she succumbed to her wounds at 2:22am this morning,” he said. “The vehicle (seen) leaving the scene led to us to suspect an estranged husband Kelvin Green as a possible suspect and a subject of interest. This morning between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. our investigators actually located Mr Green, he is being detained at this time. They are talking to him or waiting to talk to him shortly. He has not been brought here, he is not under arrest”.

Lewis said the couple were married on-again, off-again.

“They split up about a month ago and were living in separate residences,” he said. “There is an understanding that she recently obtained a restraining order. I’m not sure she actually had it, I haven’t asked the investigators, they are real busy.”

The victim’s name is being withheld pending family notification.

Police describe the suspect as a Male, Black, 6’1” to 6’3”, 220 plus pounds, wearing a light grey hooded sweatshirt, and unknown colored pants.
