Rowland Heights man arrested on suspicion of killing his wife
A 64-year-old man was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of killing his wife, whose body was found in a Rowland Heights home, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.
Stanley Wang called 911 about 12:30 p.m. to report that his 41-year-old wife had been hurt, said Deputy Guillermina Saldana of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Homicide detectives responding to a residence in the 1700 block of Batson Avenue found Wang’s wife had suffered blunt-force trauma to the head. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The victim, whose name was not given, was estranged from her husband and had returned to the residence to retrieve some personal items, Saldana said. At that time, the couple reportedly got in a physical altercation.
Wang was arrested and booked at the sheriff’s Walnut-Diamond Bar station.
