Timothy and Susan Connor had a timeshare on the popular Los Muertos Beach, in the heart of old town Puerta Vallarta.

Mexican police say the couple was sleeping Wednesday night when someone broke into their timeshare at La Palapa Condominiums.

Tim's sister described what happened next.

"He stood up and said get out of here, and he didn't get the words out of his mouth and he was knifed in the abdomen and he started swinging and my sister-in-law jumped up and started throwing things at the assailant. And then he just went crazy and just kept stabbing at my brother and stabbing, until he fell over," said Suzanne Connor.

Susan Connor is on her way back to the Bay Area Thursday night. Her husband, Timothy, was 47-years-old. He was a teamster and worked for DHL on the peninsula.
