A Georgia man was indicted by a grand jury in connection with the fatal double-murder stabbing of a married couple who owned a restaurant supply company.
Ki Song Kim, 45, was arrested in late July with stabbing to death 63-year-old Young Chan Choi and his 59-year-old wife, Sun Hee Choi at their home in Duluth, a suburb of Atlanta.

A manhunt by police in Long Island, N.Y., is currently underway after a Queens man reportedly shot two people, killing one, over a bad business deal.
Sang Ho Kim walked into Savenergy, an efficient-lighting company, at around 10 a.m near the Roosevelt Field Mall in Garden City and opened fire, police said. An employee was killed and the owner was wounded and underwent surgery. Kim was said to have been a vendor for the company.
“There was some disgruntlement between him and the company that he was attacking,” said Steve Skrynecki, Nassau County Police Chief. “It seems to be over some bad business deal or some issue with a business deal that they were involved in.”
Authorities are currently searching for Kim, reportedly 63, who is not expected to be within the immediate area of the incident. Continue Reading »

Eighteen-year-old Isabella Yun-Mi Guzman was arrested last Thursday for allegedly killing her mother by stabbing her 79 times in her face and neck in the bathroom of their Aurora, Colo., home Wednesday evening. As of Friday, she is being held without bond on investigation of first-degree murder.
According to the arrest affidavit obtained by ABC 7NEWS in Denver, the mother, 47-year-old Yun-Mi Hoy, was attacked as she went to take a shower in an upstairs bathroom on Wednesday night. Isabella’s stepfather, Ryan Hoy, was eating dinner downstairs when he heard a thumping sound upstairs and his wife calling his name.
When he rushed upstairs, he caught a glimpse of Isabella, who pushed the door shut and locked it. Hoy said he ran to get his cellphone and dial 911 when he saw blood seeping from under the bathroom door, telling the operator that he believed his wife was being attacked. When he went back to the bathroom, the door opened and Isabella walked out, holding a knife. Hoy said she never said a word as she walked past him and went downstairs. Continue Reading »
