Ex-LA cop sought in killings tied to victim father

IRVINE, Calif. (AP) — Police say a former Los Angeles officer suspected in the killings of a college basketball coach and her fiancé was represented by the coach's father when he lost his job.

LAPD Capt. William Hayes tells The Associated Press on Wednesday night that suspect Christopher Jordan Donner, who was fired from the department for making false statement in 2009, was represented by the victim's father, Randal Quan.

Quan, a former LAPD captain who became a lawyer in retirement, represented Donner in front of the Board of Rights, a disciplinary tribunal that ruled against Donner when he was dismissed.

Quan is the father of 28-year-old victim Monica Quan, who was shot along with her fiancé, Keith Lawrence, on Sunday.

Irvine police said Donner wrote a manifesto that implicated him in the killings.
