The suit alleges that management should have made Marcano aware that Caballero had a criminal history, a history of harassing women, and had access to her apartment.
Authorities say that Caballero used a master key to enter Marcano’s apartment, presumably due to romantic desires he had for her. The report says that he had attempted to initiate a romantic relationship with Marcano, but that she had declined his advances.
Caballero killed Marcano and then took his own life. Authorities found Marcano’s body several days later.
Marcano’s family has filed suit in the 9th Judicial Circuit Court in Orange County.
