75 Year Old Woman Arrested For Murder In Ventura County

Detectives say they’ve arrested a 75 year old woman for murder in Ventura County.

Simi Valley Police were called to the 6200 block of Anastasia Avenue Sunday afternoon by reports of an injured man in a home. They found the body of Salavatore Orefice, who had been shot. Detectives say while questioning Mary Karacas, she admitted shooting the 84 year old man.

She was arrested on a murder charge. Investigators say the two apparently had a long standing relationship, but there’s not talking about what they think prompted the fatal shooting.
