Wheels of Justice Move Slowly: October Shooting Death of Reston Woman Ruled Homicide

The October shooting death of Reston resident Karen Deck in South Reston's Winterthur Apartment complex has been ruled a homicide, according to Fairfax County Police.

The Virginia Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has classified this death as a homicide. The investigation continues but police do not believe there are any threats to public safety. Charges are pending.
While police didn't provide new details Tuesday about the pending charges, the person of interest in the case is 45-year-old Ronald Robertson, who was found in the Winterthur apartment with Deck's body. Police had previously charged Robertson with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon following the Oct. 24 incident.

Update: The Post has slightly more, including the fact that the man who lived in the apartment had called his parents to say "he had accidentally shot and killed his girlfriend."
