Maxim Model Murder Update: Killer Was a 'Female James Bond,' DA Says
An aspiring model murdered in her Santa Monica apartment in 2008 was allegedly killed by a hired "muscle" contracted by her father's former business partner, according to recently released court documents.
Prosecutors charge that Juliana Redding was strangled by Kelly Soo Park, 47, who "has a history of threatening and intimidating individuals who have an ongoing dispute with" Dr. Munir Uwaydah, a Southern California doctor and businessman.
Park was arrested in 2010 for the murder and, now free on $3.5 million bail, is awaiting trial early next year for the killing. Park was allegedly employed by Uwaydah as an enforcer on two other occasions, according to court papers.
