An Iowa university professor who canceled her classes due to an alleged "personal situation" was arrested days later on charges of murdering her husband.
According to People, economics professor Gowun Park, 41, was arrested last Wednesday on murder charges after authorities found her practicing first aid on her husband Sung Nam, also 41.
The West Des Moines Police Department arrested the woman on charges of kidnapping and first-degree murder after responding to a call Saturday afternoon to assist an unconscious person at the couple's residence.
Upon arrival, the officers found the teacher trying to help her husband. The man was transferred to a nearby hospital where his death was certified.
According to local press, Park was an assistant professor in the economics department at Simpson College and had e-mailed her students the day after the incident to cancel classes for the week for "personal reasons."
According to the criminal tape complaint by the media, the teacher tied her husband's hands and feet to a chair and stuffed her mouth with clothes to prevent him from screaming, before covering her head with a towel.
At the moment, the authorities do not know the reason that would have led the educator to allegedly commit the apparent crime.
For now, Park has been suspended from her job and is in custody with a bond of $ 5 million.
