A woman found dead in a parked car in a Carlsbad commercial district Friday was identified Saturday.
NBC San Diego quoted the victim’s former landlord who identified her as Joanne Javier, a dental assistant who—along with her infant son—had rented a room from him in his Mira Mesa home until a couple of months ago.
A 28-year-old San Diego man identified as John Monta remained jailed Saturday. He was arrested at 9:56 p.m. Friday by Carlsbad police investigators at an apartment in the 2200 block of Dunlop Street in Linda Vista, said Carlsbad Police Sgt. Mickey Williams.
NBC San Diego quoted friends of the victim, who said the murder suspect was the victim’s boyfriend and the father of her child.
Less than six hours earlier, police had found the woman bleeding from her chest in the 5800 block of Van Allen Way. Carlsbad paramedics pronounced her dead at the scene.
Monta was transported to the Carlsbad Police Station for processing and was booked into Vista Detention Facility for suspicion of homicide.
