Baby boy Kang, unborn
The unborn male child of Eun Kang, a 38-year old Korean female, was one of two fetuses killed when Kang was raped and stabbed to death Tuesday, Dec. 8 in the 1600 block of Electric Avenue in Venice, authorities said.
The gender of the other fetus was not listed in coroner's records. Kang was pronounced dead at 11:15 p.m., and the unborn child listed as a boy was pronounced dead three minutes later. Kang was four months pregnant at the time of her death, authorities said.
Ed Winter, a spokesman for the coroner's office, said the second unborn child was discovered by coroner's examiners the next day so the time of death is listed as 3:10 p.m. Dec 9.
Boneetio Kentro Washington, a 22-year old black man, of Culver City, has been charged with capital murder in connection with the slayings. Washington had spent time at a state mental facility earlier this year, according to law enforcement sources.
LAPD detectives said they are trying to determine whether he is connected to other crimes in the area.
