Man Questioned In Wife's Death

Homicide detectives have questioned a 25-year-old man about the death of his wife, whose body was found in their Monterey Park apartment Friday morning after other family members reported the husband was acting irrationally.

“We have a person deceased inside and we don’t know how she died,” said L.A. County Sheriff’s homicide bureau Lt. Dave Coleman.

The victim, who Coleman described as a 23-year-old Hispanic woman, was found by police after other family members said they were concerned for her safety.

The back window of the couple’s apartment in the 1700 block of College View Dr. appeared to have been broken.

Shortly after the body was found Coleman said police were called to reports of a man yelling at cars about 5 blocks from the apartment.

Monterey Park Police detained the man and quickly learned he was the dead woman’s husband.
