Mother, 8-year-old daughter stabbed to death in Rancho Cucamonga home


The bodies of a woman and her young daughter were found early Sunday after being stabbed to death inside a Rancho Cucamonga home, and investigators are still searching for a suspect in the attack, authorities said.

A 911 call about “an unknown problem” led first responders to a residential neighborhood on Bergano Place at 3 a.m., according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department report.

When deputies arrived, they found Jia Jia, 44, and her 8-year-old daughter, Ruby Meng, had been repeatedly stabbed. The two were declared dead at the scene, authorities said.


A 38-year-old Rancho Cucamonga woman had also been stabbed and was found inside the residence, sheriff’s officials said. The woman, who was not identified, was taken to a hospital “and is expected to recover from her injuries,” the Sheriff’s Department said.

Detectives said the assailant entered the home “by unknown means, then attacked and stabbed Jia, Ruby, and a female friend in a bedroom and fled through a rear sliding door.” Investigators and police dogs searched the area but did not find any suspects in the attack, according to a Sheriff’s Department report.

Two other family members were asleep at the time and were not injured, deputies said, adding that they are not suspected in the slayings.
