LA HABRA – Arthur Ruiz, 32, attacked his mother, Guadalupe Ruiz, 60, cutting off her head with a circular saw. He then tried to do the same thing to himself. He died from severe neck injuries.

Police found his decapitated mother on one bed and him on another in the same room they were renting in a three-bedroom home occupied by three other adults and a juvenile. Police were dispatched after responding to a 911 call. Neighbor Paula Sanchez said she heard the sound of the saw before she went on her daily walk but thought it was someone doing yard or house work.

“If it would have been a gunshot or something, I would have called the police.”

Arthur Riaz had some run-ins with the law before, 8 days in jail and three years probation for refusing to leave a home on Thanksgiving 2004, 45 days in jail and three years probation for being under the influence of drugs in 2000 and driving drunk in 1999.
