Couple killed in apparent murder suicide in Whittier motel room

A man facing prison for kidnapping his estranged wife apparently abducted her again and shot the woman to death before killing himself in a Whittier motel room.

Monica Thomas-Harris and Curtis ''Keno'' Harris were found dead Saturday in a Whittier Inn Motel room. The 37-year-old woman was reported missing Thursday.

Six weeks ago, the 34-year-old Harris handcuffed his estranged wife and briefly held her captive in a hotel. West Covina police Lt. Pete Mena says Harris showed up again the following day and bound her with duct tape.

Harris pleaded no contest Dec. 21 to false imprisonment in exchange for a 16-month prison sentence. He was scheduled to begin serving his sentence Jan. 24.
