SUISUN CITY, Calif. (AP) Authorities say a Northern California woman named her alleged killer as she lay dying.

Police say 30-year-old Lorena Martinez of Fairfield was found bleeding from numerous stab wounds at a Suisun City apartment complex Tuesday night.

Police say she told them a man named Victor Mejia stabbed her during an argument.

She was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say Mejia fled in Martinez's car and then abandoned it. He remains at large.

State law permits dying declarations by crime victims to be admitted as evidence in some trials.
