Husband charged in death of woman found in car due in court
A Lexington man is due in court on a murder charge in connection with the death of his wife, whose body was found by friends inside a car last week. The Middlesex District Attorney says an autopsy determined the victim, Shen Cai, died as a result of "mechanical asphyxiation." Her husband, 50-year-old Hongyan Sun, is slated for arraignment Thursday in Concord District Court. It wasn't immediately known if he had an attorney. Prosecutors say the couple was going through a divorce and that Cai had told friends about past verbal abuse and at least one instance of physical violence.
Sontay-Oxlaj was transported to LAC+USC Medical Center where he later died, the fire department said. The boy’s mother was not home at the time of the incident. The victim was alone with his father.
Calderon-Ordonez plead not guilty at his arraignment Monday afternoon in a downtown L.A. courtroom. He sat sobbing in a glass-walled custody area of the courtroom, still dressed in street clothes.
Deputy District Attorney Jon Hatami told the court he turned over discovery to the defense that included two reports of suspected child abuse, a recording of the 911 call that brought paramedics to the family’s home and photos of the boy’s injuries.
The family had moved into the home five days prior and was living there for free, according to a friend of the homeowner.
If convicted, Calderon-Ordonez faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in state prison.
He is being held on $2 million bail. His next hearing is scheduled for July 29.
