A 76-year-old woman was stabbed to death in her Long Beach home Saturday, police said.

Leam Sovanasy, who lives with family members in the 1400 block of Peterson Avenue, was discovered by a relative about 11 a.m. Saturday, police said. She had been stabbed multiple times in her upper body.

Investigators are trying to determine what prompted the killing, Long Beach Police Department spokeswoman Lisa Massacani said.

In an unrelated incident about an hour after Sovanasy was discovered, a 15-year-old was shot and killed in the 800 block of Washington Place, Massacani said.

Officers found the young man lying near the sidewalk with a single gunshot wound.
