Jade Sasha Janks, 37, was booked into custody Saturday morning, Jan. 2, a day after the man was found in the residence on Nardo Avenue, off Lomas Santa Fe Drive west of Interstate 5. The residential neighborhood sits a little more than a half-mile from the coast.

On Friday afternoon, Jan. 1, deputies went to the home to check the welfare of a man, said sheriff’s homicide Lt. Thomas Seiver.

The circumstances led homicide detectives to take over the investigation. They obtained a search warrant and went into the home, where they found the man’s body.

Janks remained jailed without bail Saturday evening, Jan. 2.

Seiver did not say where she was arrested, nor did he release further details of the incident. The man’s name was not released, pending notification of his family.
