A 46-year-old man has been charged with breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home and stabbing her and the victim’s family member, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Eduardo Marin (dob 1/30/70) is charged with six counts in case KA113767: two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and one count each of attempted murder, injuring a child’s parent, first-degree burglary, and cruelty to a child by endangering health.

The charging document includes a special allegation that the defendant personally used a dangerous and deadly weapon, a knife, during the commission of the crime. Additionally, the felony complaint contains a special allegation that Marin committed great bodily injury on the victim under circumstances involving domestic violence.

The defendant is scheduled to be arraigned today in Department N at the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Pomona Branch. Prosecutors are asking that bail be set at $2.09 million.

Deputy District Attorney John Thibodeau of the Victim Impact Program is assigned to the case.

Prosecutors said on the evening of Oct. 13, Marin allegedly broke into his ex-girlfriend’s West Covina home and stabbed her multiple times in front of their young son.

The victim’s family member reportedly tried to intercede and also was injured by Marin, prosecutors added.

Following the assault, the defendant allegedly fled the scene, according to prosecutors. Authorities located Marin soon after the stabbing and arrested him in connection with the incident.

If convicted as charged, Marin faces a maximum possible sentence of 15 years to life in state prison.

The case is being investigated by the West Covina Police Department.
