Funeral Set For Retired Schoolteacher Killed In Her NorCal Home

HERCULES, Calif. (AP) — A funeral for a retired schoolteacher who was killed in her Hercules home is set for this week.

Relatives of Susie Ko say services will be held Friday at St. Patrick’s Church in Rodeo on Friday at 10 a.m., with a burial to follow in Oakland at Mountain View Cemetery.

The 55-year-old Ko was found dead in her home by neighbors on Oct. 5. Police say an autopsy report showed that she died of stab wounds and blunt force trauma to the head.

Meanwhile, investigators are trying to determine if a husband and wife arrested last week near Seattle, and named as suspects in the killing, may have been involved in more crimes as they drove from Northern California to Washington.

Darnell Washington, 24, and his wife, 25-year-old Tania Washington, are being held in connection with Ko’s death, as well as an earlier crime spree in Southern California.
