Police have arrested a man they say stabbed a woman to death inside an adult bookstore Monday in the Midway District. Lt. Anthony Dupree tells KOGO News that officers took 39-year-old Shaun Ward into custody Monday night.
Ward was in the shop along Midway Drive around 1:45p.m. when he assaulted and stabbed 65-year-old Diane Spagnuolo of El Cajon. An officer in another department recognized Ward from footage taken inside the shop and assisted San Diego Police.
Police are still investigating the motive behind the killing and if the two knew each other. Ward is in jail on murder charges and will be arraigned Thursday.
