(Scroll down for video) A woman was killed by a teenager who she took into her home after he had nowhere else to sleep.
The father of the teenager said that he has not seen or spoken to his son for two years before the incident.
The 16-year-old boy, who was not identified due to his age, allegedly stabbed the woman to death in the living room of her home in California.
Connie Cajulis, 53, Los Angeles, allowed the teenager to stay at her home because he was going through a tough time, police said.
After killing the woman, the teenager drove away in her car. Police caught up with the teen after he crashed the car about two miles from the victim’s home.
The teenager, who was injured in the car crash, is still in the hospital. He is now facing a charge of murder. The motive for the stabbing is still unknown.
