The family member of a 56-year-old woman who was found dead inside a burning building near the edge of the Mission District has been arrested in connection with her killing, police said Monday.
Daniel Antonio Gudino, 29, was naked and covered in blood at around 9:22 a.m. Sunday morning when authorities found him on the patio of his home on Natoma Street between 14th and 15th streets, according to police.
Gudino may have been suffering from a mental health crisis, police said. He was taken into custody by officers who talked with him while firefighters extinguished the blaze.
Gudino was arrested on suspicion of homicide-related charges and taken to a hospital for treatment.
Police said firefighters found the body in the bedroom.
The Medical Examiner’s Office has not identified the woman, but police said she is believed to be a relative of Gudino.
Police have not released further information. The case remains under investigation.
