Long Beach man dies in hospital after being strangled by his daughter

A Long Beach woman is facing murder and elder abuse charges after she allegedly strangled her father during an argument late last month.

The man, identified as Juan Ochoa Rodríguez, 74, died at a local hospital on Friday, more than a week after his daughter was arrested for attacking him.

On April 25, Genesis Noemi Ochoa, 30, attacked her father and another unidentified woman at a home in the 5100 block of Long Beach Boulevard, according to the Long Beach Police Department.

Police arrived at the scene and found both victims with serious neck injuries and both were immediately transported to local hospitals for treatment.

Genesis Ochoa was identified as a suspect in the attack and was arrested the following day on suspicion of attempted murder and elder abuse.

On Friday, almost two weeks after being hospitalized, Ochoa Rodríguez died from his injuries.

Genesis Ochoa remains in custody on $2 million bond. Detectives are currently working to submit paperwork to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to have their charges changed to include murder.

The unidentified female victim has since been released from the hospital, police said.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Long Beach Police Homicide Detectives at 562-570-7244. You can also submit an anonymous tip online at lacrimestoppers.org.
