(Scroll down for video) A woman is dead after being stabbed by a couple in front of her children, police in California said.

The Los Angeles Police Department said that a man and a woman have been arrested on charges of murder after they were accused of stabbing the woman to death in front of her children over a parking space at a swap meet.

22-year-old Reggie Cervantes and 19-year-old Brenda Rangel, were charged with murder in the death of 43-year-old Elizabeth Yanez of Santa Fe Springs.

Both were booked into jail, and bail was set at $1 million each.

According to the police investigation, the dispute erupted over the parking spot about 9:30 p.m. on Friday, in the 13900 block of Alondra Boulevard.

One of the victim’s children even offered the couple a different parking space, but that didn’t calm the situation. Yanez was stabbed multiple times in her neck and back.

She was rushed to UC Irvine Medical Center, where she died of her injuries.
