Colorado Springs Man Arrested In Murder Investigation

A Colorado Springs man is facing charges in the death of his wife.

After being called to the Fillmore Ridge Apartments on Chestnut for a suicide call Tuesday, officers found the body of a 25-year-old woman with a gunshot wound. The victim was identified as Karen Mamo.

Further investigation gave police probable cause to arrest the victim's husband, 26-year-old Louis Mamo, for second-degree murder.

Karen Mamo's death is the 20th homicide of 2012, a sharp drop-off from this time last year, when there were 25 homicides as of October 23. Homicides were at an all-time high for Colorado Springs in 2011.
