A 44-year-old man was in San Mateo county jail after police said he stabbed two women, one of them fatally, in a Redwood City home in what appeared to be a domestic dispute that turned tragic.

Authorities received a 911 call around 12:30 a.m. from a woman screaming for help and stating that someone was trying to kill her, according to a statement from San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies arrived at the 3200 block of Fair Oaks Avenue in Redwood City to find a man covered in blood standing outside the home. 

Inside, the deputies found two female victims who had suffered multiple stab wounds. They were rushed to Stanford Medical Center, where one was later pronounced dead. Authorities said the other was listed in stable condition.

Jose Uriarte-Martinez was booked into the Maguire Correctional Facility in Redwood City on suspicion of multiple charges, including homicide; attempted homicide; child cruelty; corporal injury to a spouse, cohabitant or child's parent; and disobeying a domestic-relations court order.

He was being held without bail and faces an Aug. 7 court date.

Anyone needing help with domestic violence can call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-7233.
