Couple Die in Murder-Suicide

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police detectives are investigating the murder-suicide of a married couple whose bodies were found inside their fourth-floor apartment, Thursday evening, April 19, 2007.

The bodies of Sook Y. Key, 42, and her husband, Ho Yeol Ki, 44, were discovered by Key's 13 and 18-year-old children around 9:30 PM. The bodies were lying in the living room of the apartment, located in the 400 block of South Detroit Street.

According to investigators, Sook shot her husband in the head, then turned the gun on herself. She apparently died of a self-inflicted wound to the head. Paramedics pronounced the couple dead at the scene.
