Man arrested in killing of family member found dead in burning home

Police say Daniel Antonio Gudino, 29, was nude and covered in blood

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.

There have been 11 homicides reported in San Francisco thus far this year.

On Monday, a 36-year-old man, Anchour Chouadra, died after being hospitalized with injuries from a car-to-car shooting in Nob Hill on April 1.
