Man attempts to bury wife alive

A man attempted to bury his wife alive during a horrifying attack at a California beach on Thursday night, cops said.

The woman called 911 just before 9pm, reporting that her husband had just tried to kill her on Coronado Beach, local police said.

“The victim escaped and ran towards Ocean Blvd, where she was found on the sidewalk by a passer-by,” police said in a statement.

“Paramedics arrived on scene and transported her to a trauma centre in San Diego.”

The victim’s husband was found a short time later, hiding in the backyard of a home.

The couple visited the beach earlier in the evening and got into an argument that escalated when the suspect, later identified as Jose Luis Mares III, 23, of Moreno Valley, started attacking his wife, cops said.

He tried to throw her into the surf, and then brought her near a lifeguard tower, where he tried burying her in the sand, according to cops and local outlet KSWB-TV.

“She said there was a hole in the ground and the hole had previously been there from probably kids digging it during the day,” Detective Ryan Brennan of the Coronado Police Department told the station.

“But during the struggle, she said he threw her in that hole when he began putting sand on top of her.”
