Photos: Isabella Guzman stabbed mom 79 times, affidavit says

Last week, we reported that eighteen-year-old Isabella Guzman had been formally charged with murder in the death of her mother in Aurora; see our previous coverage below.

We've now obtained the arrest affidavit in the case, and the level of violence it recounts is absolutely shocking.

The document, on view below along with plenty of new photos like the one seen here, maintains that Guzman's mom was stabbed 79 times.
