TWO HOMICIDES SO FAR THIS WEEK IN YAKIMA
It was the second homicide this week in the city of Yakima. On Sunday Yakima Police say a 24-year-old woman strangled a 26-year-old man to death at a Yakima apartment. Luisa Parmenter is being held on $1 million bail. She's facing charges of second-degree murder and second-degree assault charges. She's being held in the Yakima County jail. Authorities say Hector Felix was killed during a fight at the apartment that police say was gang related. They say Felix was a documented gang member in Yakima before he was killed. The investigation continues today. If you know anything about either homicide contact Yakima Police Detective Lee at 509-575-6200.
