Ondrasik was not at his San Fernando Valley home when the July 28 stabbing occurred.
Alba Canton was working as a part-time caretaker at the musician's Encino residence when her husband, 44-year-old Carlos Canton, dropped by unexpectedly to take her to dinner, police said. A man came out of a bedroom closet and attacked him. Carlos Canton, critically wounded in the attack, has since recovered.
Investigators later learned Alba Canton, who waited two hours before calling police, was having an affair with a security guard who matched the description of the attacker, police said.
