Jackson Bell

A Burbank man arrested this week on suspicion of murdering his

girlfriend is scheduled to be arraigned today in a Burbank courtroom,

police said.


Ray Pascual, 38, was arrested in Hollywood on Monday and booked on

suspicion of first-degree murder after police discovered the body of

Courtney Quintin, 37, at an apartment in the 400 block of East San

Jose Avenue earlier that day. The two lived together at the


apartment, police said.

Police, responding to a report of domestic violence at the

residence, forced their way into the apartment and found Quintin’s

body. Burbank Police Sgt. William Berry declined to provide details,

but said it was obvious the woman had been murdered.

Pascual was jailed without bail and is expected to be charged

today, Berry said.

Police are continuing their investigation, he said.
