A man accused of stabbing his estranged wife to death in Carlsbad last weekend is scheduled to be arraigned today at the Vista Courthouse.
Pedro Zurita, 49, was arrested after authorities found the woman's body about 8 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of a business park on Van Allen Way, where she worked as a custodian.
Family members identified the victim as 37-year-old Ariflor Gonzalez. They said the couple was married for 21 years but had separated three months ago.
Pedro Zurita was booked into jail on suspicion of first-degree murder. He was being held without bail pending arraignment.
