A man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of murdering a City Heights woman last week.

Rin Mai, 57, is suspected of killing 53-year-old Roun Choeun, who was found mortally wounded in her home in the 4000 block of Estrella Avenue, according to San Diego police Sgt. Chris Tivanian.

The victim’s adult daughter called 911 shortly after 8 p.m. last Thursday to report that she had found her mother unresponsive and suffering from traumatic injuries to her upper body in the residence near Colina del Sol Park, Tivanian said.

Authorities did not immediately disclose how Mai was identified as a suspect in the case and did not specify his relationship to Choeun, if any, nor did they comment on a motive.

Mai was being held in San Diego Central Jail without bail pending arraignment, scheduled for Monday afternoon.
