GLENDALE — A 27-year-old Tujunga man is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on charges that he fatally shot his cousin before dumping her body on the Foothill (210) Freeway last month, officials said.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s homicide detectives arrested Aram Sarukhanyan Tuesday night on suspicion of murder after he was released from Huntington Memorial Hospital, where he had been admitted as result of a self-inflicted gunshot wound shortly after the body of his cousin, Adrine Arzumanyan, was discovered on the La Crescenta Avenue offramp.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office had not yet filed charges against Sarukhanyan as of Wednesday afternoon. And sheriff’s department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said detectives had yet to interview Sarukhanyan on Wednesday due to his medical condition.
Sarukhanyan — who was being held in lieu of $1-million bail — is scheduled to be arraigned today in Los Angeles County Superior Court in Pasadena in connection with the April 29 shooting death.
