Dominic Chagolla Won’t Be Living With Mommy Any Longer - Charged With Stabbing Mother Repeatedly In Both Eyes

Glendale, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) - Dominic Chagolla, a 32-year-old Arizona man was jailed Tuesday after he allegedly stabbed his mother repeatedly in the face, including both eyes.

According to Glendale Police, 50-year-old Maria Chagolla was found dead in the back of her own vehicle, after she went missing 5 days prior.

Investigators say the woman was found covered with a blanket, with multiple stab wounds to the face, including stab wounds in both eyes.

A silver colored knife that was found underneath Maria's body reportedly matched a set of knives that were found in the home Dominic shares with his mother.

Police say family members reported Maria missing after she left to drop off her son and never returned. Family members told investigators that Dominic seemed evasive about his mother's whereabouts when he arrived home about an hour later.

When police questioned Chagolla about where he had been, he bragged that he was jogging and could run a mile in five minutes. He also stated that he does not work because his mother "gets him whatever he needs, according to the arrest affidavit."

Two tile workers working in the area where Maria's body was found told investigators they had seen a suspicious man fitting Chagnolla's description walking by with a gym bag. The same man was seen by the workers without the gym bag just minutes later. Police later found the missing gym bag in a neighbor's trash - filled with bloody clothing.

Chagolla was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on a charge of first-degree murder. After the judge set his bond at $1 million dollars, Chagnolla argued that the bond was unreasonably high stating "I still have a daughter and family members that I love very much."
