Sacramento County sheriff’s detectives say that they have made an arrest in the stabbing death of a Rancho Cordova woman on Tuesday.

Harold Russell Fulkerson, 28, was booked into the Sacramento County jail late Tuesday night, allegedly for the killing of Teresa Ann Anderson, 58, of Rancho Cordova.

Anderson’s body was found in an apartment around 11:40 a.m. Tuesday after Rancho Cordova police were called to the unit in the 3200 block of Laurelhurst Drive, east of Mather Field Road.

She had been stabbed to death.

Several people who were at the apartment were detained and were interviewed by detectives Tuesday afternoon. That ultimately led to the arrest of Fulkerson.

Detectives have determined that there is “no particular relationship” between Anderson and Fulkerson – both were visitors to the apartment. No motive for the killing of Anderson has been determined.

There are no other suspects in the case, according to detectives.

According to Sacramento Superior Court records, Fulkerson was scheduled to go on trial Wednesday for possesson of a concealed dirk or dagger and misdemeanor possession of tear gas and misdemeanor trespassing.
