A woman was arrested on suspicion of killing her mother, who was found stabbed to death in a Lake Forest home early Wednesday, authorities said.

They found a woman in her 70s suffering from multiple stab wounds, officials said in a news release.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name was not immediately released.
Courtney Baker, 32, and a man in his 70s who both live in the home were detained at the scene.
