Quartney was shot by an ex-partner on the afternoon of Tuesday 22nd March, in broad daylight near her home in Los Angeles.
According to Anita Nelson, the Chief Executive of SRO Housing Corporation,who identified Yochum to the Times, Yochum was walking her two dogs when the alleged gunman walked up to her and shot her. After the shooting, the suspect was taken into police custody. Nelson told the Times, “It is mind-boggling; it happened in the open. I’m heartbroken. Our residents are traumatized, our staff is traumatized.” She added that “Everybody loved her. She was very popular.”
In December 2017 Daniel Molayem, 39, was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to 50 years in prison.
Yochum’s friend Megan Lacy Wren addressed Molayem in court, telling him, “When the coroner called me to verify she had been killed, I already knew you were the one who did it as she would express her fear of you killing her,” City News reported.
