Fulton County DA Seeks Death Penalty in Atlanta-Area Spa Killings Case

Robert Aaron Long, the guy accused of murdering eight people at three Atlanta-area spas in April, made an appearance in court for his 2nd hearing, this time in Atlanta, on Monday morning.

Long is facing the death penalty in Fulton County for murders of 69-year-old Suncha Kim, 74-year-old Soon Chung Park, 51-year-old Hyun Jung Grant, and 63-year-old Yong Ae Yue at the Gold Spa and Aromatherapy Spa. All of the victims in Atlanta were Asian women.

Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis confirmed to the press that she served a notice of death as well as a request for a hate crime enhancement centered on what she called Long’s gender and race biases.

Long pleaded guilty to murder, aggravated assault, and other charges in a Cherokee County court in July in connection with the shootings at Youngs Asian Massage near Acworth.
