LOS ANGELES – A 44-year-old woman was charged today with the 2008 murder of an aspiring model-actress, the District Attorney’s Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Halim Dhanidina of the Major Crimes Division said Kelly Soo Park (dob 10/10/65) is expected to be arraigned this afternoon in Department 144 of the Airport Court. Park is charged in case No. SA074676.

Park was arrested in Camarillo on June 17 by officers of the Santa Monica Police Department for the murder of Juliana Redding, 21. Park allegedly entered Redding’s Santa Monica apartment on March 15, 2008, and physically assaulted her, causing her death.

Though the defendant was staying in Camarillo at the time of her arrest, state records show her city of residence as Thousand Oaks, prosecutors said.

Redding moved to southern California from Tucson to pursue a modeling and acting career.

Bail for Park was recommended at $1 million. The defendant faces a maximum prison term of 25 years to life, if convicted as charged.
