Coroner's officials identified the woman as Isabelle Jarka. Her 39-year-old husband called 911 about 8:45 a.m. Monday to say he stepped out to run errands and returned to find his Tamarisk Street home ransacked and his wife unconscious in their bedroom, said Murrieta police Lt. Dennis Vrooman. When police arrived, Jarka's mother, who lives across the street, was already there, Vrooman said. An officer and paramedics tried to revive Jarka, but she was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after 9 a.m., Vrooman said. Sgt. Jim Ganley said that as of late Monday afternoon investigators were still interviewing the husband and that they had no suspect information to release. The husband told police he had gone out for less than an hour to pick up coffee and baby formula. When he returned, the husband said, he found that a side door to the garage had been forced open. Jarka had suffered head injuries, including cuts on her forehead, but it was not immediately clear how the injuries were inflicted, Ganley said. The couple's 12-year-old daughter and 6-month-old son were at their grandparents' house across the street, where they had spent the night, Ganley said. At the crime scene Monday, a quiet street with newer two-story homes with two-car garages, neighbors gathered in their driveways trading information about the killing and the family of the woman who died. "They're Jehovah's Witnesses," said Kristine Scott, who lives down the street, "so they kind of keep to themselves. They're kind of introverted." Scott said she had been up since 4 a.m., but did not hear any unusual noises. She did not even realize anything had happened until she looked outside to find the neighborhood lined with police tape. Another neighbor, Sharon Hicks, said the oldest homes in the neighborhood were built about seven years ago and the family of the woman who died had lived there since then. Hicks and other neighbors said groups of Jehovah's Witnesses sometimes would park at Jarka's parents' home and proselytize around the neighborhood. Neighbor Kim Papazoglou said Jarka's husband worked in construction and was always cordial when she met him picking up the mail. She said Jarka home-schooled their child. "This is a quiet little neighborhood," Papazoglou said. "We never see anything like this." Staff writer Tammy J. McCoy contributed to this report.

    Sounds a bit strange, Husband left for an hour to get coffee and baby stuff in the morning and someone breaks in and kills her??? Why would someone want to break in and do that when they don't know when he is coming back. Not ideal break in scenario. What do you think??

    she probably wanted a divorce or out of the cult and he killed her so she won't bring reproach on Jemimas name

    I just received a call from a brother about this.

    It is not so likely she was killed by a stranger. I'm sure the police are looking at the husband very closely. Time will tell.

    I asked my friend what the heck is up with Murrietta.

    He said the new area is nice but it is surrounded by "bad area, with "meth labs and tweakers."

    The husband SO killed her.

    1) kids are conveniently across the street wtih grandma for the night - no witnesses to the killing

    2) husband conveniently needs to go to the store for formula and...who knew exactly that he was leaving for that spontaneous item and would be gone EXACTLY long enough to break in, kill the woman and get back out unseen?

    3) nobody would suspect such religious people of committing such a heinous crime? ha!

    He SOOOOO did it

    Lets not jump to conclusions.

    If he did it, the police will break his story quick enough, but until then, I think a little sympathy is in order.

    Where is Murrietta??

    . The Newspaper article didn't say what State, at least I didn't see it. I live in Canada.

    I feel bad for the family and lets hope the Husband didn't kill her it just seemed kind of weird, but thats because I watch tooooo many crime shows like Law and Order on TV.

    We do need to wait and see. Poor woman, what a tragedy. The ones that will suffer will be the children without their Mommy.
