A San Leandro man was charged with murder today for the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend Friday afternoon. Edgar Alfonso Vasquez, 25, is accused of killing 24-year-old Annellie Marie Moreno in the 300 block of Best Avenue in San Leandro at about 4 p.m. on Friday.
San Leandro police Sgt. Robert Sanchez said Moreno and Vasquez had been in a relationship and had a child together but were in the process of breaking up. A friend of Moreno who said she witnessed the stabbing called police to report the incident. Police responded to the 300 block of Best Avenue and found Moreno slumped over in a parked car suffering from multiple stab wounds, he said. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The friend of Moreno who witnessed the stabbing gave investigators Vasquez’s home address, which is in the 1600 block of 162nd Avenue in San Leandro, Sanchez said.
Police went to the home but Vasquez refused orders to surrender, according to Sanchez. He said the Alameda County sheriff’s K-9 unit was deployed, the sheriff’s dog entered the house and bit Vasquez and he was forcibly arrested. Vasquez was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital and was then transferred to the county jail on Sunday, Sanchez said. Vasquez was scheduled to be arraigned on the murder charge in Alameda County Superior Court late today.
