Police: Mom in critical condition after nephew stabs her, kills her baby


Folsom police released new details Friday about the attack that killed a 5-month-old boy and left his mother in critical condition.

Investigators said the suspect, 20-year-old Jose Reyes Torres, stabbed his infant cousin Roberto Varela and aunt Arela Aguilar Thursday afternoon. When police arrived at the scene, Torres was shot and later died.

On Friday, people stopped by to leave candles and stuffed animals outside the victims' apartment building.

"Hopefully at least it lifts the family's spirit in some way or another to know there's good people out there 20 that are thinking about them 22 even if they don't know them," neighbor Chris Herrera said.

Herrera never knew his neighbors, but when he learned about the attack, he wanted to add something to the small memorial outside their home to honor the little boy's memory.
