Burlingame police say woman stabbed man to death inside their home

BURLINGAME, Calif. (KGO) -- Burlingame Police say a woman stabbed the man she lived with to death Saturday night inside their home.

There was a Coroner's seal on the door of the home Mia Smith shared with a man neighbors and friends knew as Ed. Co-workers who knew him from a new job and did not want to be on camera stopped by the house Monday stunned anyone would hurt him.

Burlingame Police say they received the call just before 10 p.m. Saturday night for an unresponsive man.

"It was obvious that he had sustained stab wounds," said Lt. Jay Kiely.

First responders pronounced the victim dead at the scene. Police then arrested 36-year-old Smith. She's been booked at San Mateo County Jail on homicide.

Smith worked at nearby Union Bank where co-workers declined to speak on camera. Not far from the home the couple was known by employees at Sunrise Market, as well as an independent car dealership.

A man who works there says Mia and Ed were engaged at one point. Also that he just stopped to talk to Ed who was with his grandson Saturday afternoon.

He was shocked to hear police arrested Smith.

Smith will be arraigned Tuesday afternoon.
