Husband arrested in connection with Rancho Cordova stabbing death

By Debbie Arrington

A Rancho Cordova man was arrested Saturday in connection with the stabbing death of his wife.

Kheim Thuong Tran, 41, was taken into custody by Sacramento Sheriff's detectives and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on suspicion of murder. His 27-year-old wife's name has not been released by the Sacramento County Coroner's Office, pending the notification of her next of kin.

Late Thursday, sheriff's deputies responded to a domestic disturbance report at Tran's home in the 3500 block of Granby Drive and found the woman dead with multiple stab wounds.

Tran had what investigators believe was a self-inflicted puncture wound to the chest and was taken to a hospital for treatment. He was arrested and booked after his Saturday release from the hospital.
