Killer Sentenced For Previous Assault

"FORTWORTH, TX — A 49-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting a 62-year-old woman, then turning the gun on himself, had previously assaulted and threatened a female roommate, telling the woman, `I will slit your throat, and we’ll both be dead tonight,` according to a police report.

"Aldin Falatovic was sentenced to 30 days in jail in October for the attack on his 52-year-old roommate, court records show.

"Falatovic and 62-year-old Sandra Whitehall were found shot shortly before 5 p.m. Tuesday inside Whitehall’s apartment in the 5900 block of Calloway Drive South in far west Fort Worth.

"Whitehall was pronounced dead at the scene. Falatovic was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

"Homicide Sgt. Joe Loughman said that while police are awaiting a ruling by the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office, investigators suspect that Falatovic shot Whitehall before shooting himself. The two had been dating.

"What prompted the shooting is unknown, he said."
