Attempted murder case tossed out by prosecutors


Prosecutors have tossed out the case against a 22-year-old Canyon Country woman arrested last week on suspicion of attempted murder due to lack of evidence.

Abigail Arnold was arrested by deputies of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station shortly after 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, on suspicion that a crime had been committed against her two-year-old daughter.

On Monday, prosecutors abandoned the case entirely.

“It was declined due to lack of corpus,” Ricardo Santiago, spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, told The Signal Tuesday.

He explained “lack of corpus” to mean prosecutors found a lack of evidence to convince them that a crime had been committed.
