2 women, 28 and 58, killed in separate NYC domestic assaults: cops

Two Brooklyn women were killed in separate domestic assaults in their homes within three days of each other, police said Tuesday. 

Kelly Kwak, 28, was strangled to death inside a first-floor apartment on Gates Avenue near Classon Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 9:40 a.m. Friday, authorities said.

Officers were conducting a wellness check on her when they found her dead and “with trauma about the body,” cops said.

A 32-year-old man – who is being considered a person of interest but has not been charged – was removed from the scene and taken to Woodhull Hospital for treatment and evaluation.

His exact relationship to Kwak is unclear. 

The city medical examiner’s office has ruled Kwak’s death a homicide, caused by compression of the neck, a spokeswoman said.
