Authorities have made an arrest in Thursday’s slaying of a 29-year-old woman during a late-night fight at a Spring Valley apartment complex.

Deputies investigating reports of a disturbance in the 1600 block of Canyon Road found the unconscious victim lying in a parking lot shortly before midnight Thursday, according to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.

The woman, whose name was withheld pending family notification, had suffered traumatic injuries to her upper body. She died at the scene despite lifesaving attempts on the part of the patrol personnel and paramedics, Lt. Pat McEvoy said.

Investigators found the suspect, Kandynn Taylor Wilson, also 29, a few blocks from the site of the woman’s death.

After being questioned by homicide detectives, Wilson was arrested on suspicion of murder.
