An exterminator admitted to strangling a young Philadelphia doctor found bound and burned in her city row home, police said.

Homicide unit Capt. James Clark said 36-year-old Jason Smith was arrested Wednesday night at his home in Levittown, about 25 miles northeast of the city. He's charged in the killing 35-year-old Dr. Melissa Ketunuti.

Police said Smith had an appointment at Ketunuti's home on the day she was killed. They said he strangled her with a rope after the two got in an argument. She was not sexually assaulted.
....

"During the course of him servicing her, they got into some type of argument. It went terribly wrong. At that point, he struck her while she was in the basement, knocked her down, strangled her to death and then ultimately set her body on fire," Clark said.

2. Senseless violence.

I wonder about Jason Smith's history. How does someone all of a sudden to something so horrific out of the blue?

RIP Dr. Ketunuti What a sad loss.

5. I heard about this case.

She was a young, gifted doctor who loved her dog. She had such a bright future and this useless piece of trash snuffed it. I hope he rots in jail.

Rest in peace, doctor.

7. locking - local crime story

This is a local crime story. I just read about a nasty crime in my town where a son killed his mother. Shocking crimes like this happen everywhere.
Please put in GD, or the Pennsylvania group.
