Man and Woman Arrested for Alleged Murder of Three Women
A woman and her boyfriend were arrested and charged with murder for allegedly beating and strangling three women to death over a rental dispute in California last week.
Jordan Guzman, 20, and her boyfriend, Anthony McCloud, 18, were taken into custody in Las Vegas – 400 miles away from a Hemet, California, home where the bodies of Wendy Lopez-Araiza, her daughter, Genesis Lopez-Araiza, and her son’s 18-year-old girlfriend, Trinity Clyde, were found on Wednesday.
According to a statement from the Hemet Police Department, Wendy’s husband arrived at their home after getting off work Wednesday night shortly after 8:40 pm.
He immediately called 911 after he found his dead wife and reported that the home was ‘covered in blood’.

When officers from the department arrived at the home located in the 1400 block of Rabbit Peak Way in Hemet, they found all three women.
According to police, Guzman had recently moved into the home and McCloud had been seen visiting the residence prior to the incident.
All three victims were pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities said Guzman and McCloud stole Clyde’s Hyundai Sonata.
‘Investigators learned rather quickly of a possible Las Vegas connection and immediately contacted Nevada authorities to be on the lookout for Trinity’s missing Hyundai Sonata,’ police said in the statement.
On Thursday, police located the vehicle in Las Vegas and Guzman and McCloud were arrested.
The bodies of Lopez-Araiza’s daughter, Genesis Lopez-Araiza, and her son’s 18-year-old girlfriend, Trinity Clyde (right), were also found on Wednesday.
Guzman and McCloud were both charged with three counts of murder each.
They are being held at Clark County Detention Center in Las Vegas on $2 million bail each.
Both are subject to the extradition process, which may take several weeks.
It’s unclear how long Guzman was a tenant at the residence, but police said on Friday that a dispute over her rental agreement sparked the alleged attacks.
Family members launched a GoFundMe for the mother and daughter.
‘They were brutally and senselessly murdered. We are asking for financial help, because this tragedy is impossible for us to handle at this moment, on our own. Please help us with the funeral expenses,’ the page reads.
The account has raised more than $10,000 as of Sunday morning.
