Woman Charged with Husband's Murder Gets New Court Date

Soccoro Mora also faces a charge of killing a family dog.

A woman accused of fatally stabbing her estranged husband received a new court date today.

Socorro Mora, 44, appeared in Pomona Superior Court for a scheduled preliminary hearing, but Commissioner Wade Olson agreed to push the date back at the request of the District Attorney's office.  The defendant will return to court Oct. 16 for the hearing.

Mora was arrested in October and charged with murdering her estranged husband George Mora at his Brookside Court home.  The father of four was found dead from multiple stab wounds on Oct. 19 minutes after Socorro Mora called the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department to report a domestic disturbance at the home.

The defendant was found in the front yard bleeding from her wounds.

Besides being charged with fatally stabbing her husband, Mora also is accused of killing one of the family dogs last September and faces a third count of domestic violence related to an alleged incident that also took place around the same time.  She has pleaded not guilty to all three counts.

Mora is being held on $5 million bail at the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood.
