Husband Arrested for Wife's Death

Los Angeles: A 36-year-old man was arrested shortly after midnight, January 12, 2007, after he reported to police that he had shot his wife.

Los Angeles police officers arrived a few minutes after the call and detained Benjamin Burgos at his home in the 6200 block of Denny Avenue in North Hollywood.

When investigators entered the home, they found Burgos's 32-year-old wife of ten years lying on the living room couch. She had been shot several times. Detectives later recovered a weapon.

At the time of the shooting, the couple's two children, a 7-year-old girl and a 3-year-old boy, were sleeping in their bedrooms, but they were unharmed. Both children were taken into protective custody by the Department of Children Family Services.

The wife's name is being withheld until a family member has been notified.

Burgos was booked on a murder charge and his bail was not immediately available.

Anyone with information is asked to call North Hollywood Detectives Martin Pinner or Steven Castro at 818-623-4075. On weekends and during off-hours, call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
