SAN FRANCISCO — The search for a car that was stolen from a home in a usually tranquil suburb of San Francisco where a retired schoolteacher was killed has come to an end outside of Seattle, and a man and his wife wanted in the unrelated shooting of a Los Angeles County sheriff's deputy have been arrested, police said.
Darnell Washington, 24, and his 25-year-old wife, Tania Washington, were taken into custody and the car stolen from the Hercules home of Susie Ko was recovered Wednesday, said King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindy West.
Ko, 55, was found dead on the floor of her home by neighbors who were called by her husband, Kelvin, when she failed to pick him up at Oakland International Airport late Friday.
After her body was found, Hercules police said the only thing that appeared to be missing from the home was the family's Subaru station wagon.
Around 9 a.m. Wednesday, a police officer in the Seattle suburb of SeaTac ran the plate of a Subaru and found it was reported stolen in California, West said.
