SAN FERNANDO (CNS) — A 29-year-old man has been charged with murdering his wife, who was found dying at a mobile home park north of Castaic.
Robert Daniel Danielson pleaded not guilty in connection with the death of his 26-year-old wife, Nicole Medina.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies and paramedics found the woman at about 8:40 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24, at a mobile home park in the 36200 block of Paradise Ranch Road, just off the Templin Highway exit from Interstate 5 in the Grapevine Pass area, after her husband reported she was unresponsive, Deputy Ryan Rouzan of the Sheriff’s Information Bureau said.
She was pronounced dead after being taken to a hospital, Rouzan said.
An autopsy determined that Medina died from blunt force trauma to her head, according to the sheriff’s department.
Her husband agreed to be interviewed by sheriff’s investigators and was arrested Saturday evening after being questioned, according to the department.
Danielson has remained in jail since then.
He is due back in a San Fernando courtroom on Nov. 10, when a date is scheduled to be set for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to require him to proceed to trial.
The couple’s two children, 1 and 3, were being cared for by family members, officials said.
