LEMOORE, Calif. (KFSN) – A 44-year-old Lemoore man was arrested after police said his wife died from injuries she sustained in a physical altercation with him last month.
Jesse Corrales was arrested by authorities on Tuesday.
Investigators say the incident occurred on October 25th. Lemoore police officers were called to a house on Deodar Lane shortly after midnight, but the victim was gone when they arrived.
Lemoore police say the officers called the victim but they did not speak to the officers.
That afternoon, Hanford police began an investigation into a suspicious death in the city that authorities later linked to the domestic violence incident in Lemoore.
They identified the victim as Corrales’ wife. The police said she died of the injuries she sustained during the brawl that morning.
After weeks of investigation, detectives arrested Corrales for murder and domestic violence.
