A Filipina has been identified by friends and family as the victim in an apparent murder-suicide in San Gabriel Valley in Southern California.

Albert Ong, 49, is believed to have stabbed his wife, 25-year-old Blessel Ong, to death with a kitchen knife before stabbing himself to death.

The two were discovered at their home the day after Christmas.

Detectives have discovered that the couple had a history of domestic violence, with Albert serving probation. He was due in court earlier this week.

Friends and family are now trying to raise money to have Blessel’s remains transported back to her family in the Philippines.
