Coroner’s officials reported 10 killings between Oct. 18 and Oct. 24, bringing the year-to-date total to 517, according to data collected for The Times’ Homicide Report database. Over the same period last year, 13 people were killed, 12 less than in 2008.

The county saw two double homicides last week: One occurred during a domestic-violence incident, while the other is believed to have taken place in the course of a robbery.

In the early morning of Oct. 21, Gladys Bloodworth, 64, and her son Jeremy Bloodworth, 25, were shot to death at their home in Athens.

Gladys got into an altercation with her husband, John Bloodworth, 65, about 2:30 a.m., said Ed Winter, spokesman for the coroner’s office.

Jeremy got involved in the fight, at which point John shot both him and Gladys, Winter said.

Authorities were called and the mother and son were pronounced dead at the scene. According to coroner’s records, Gladys suffered from a gunshot wound to the face, while John sustained a gunshot wound to the head.

Soon after the shooting, Lennox sheriff’s deputies apprehended and arrested John Bloodworth. On Monday, the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office charged him with two counts of murder.

His arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 15 at the Inglewood Municipal Court. He is being held on no bail at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility downtown.

A day after Bloodworths were killed, a husband and wife were found dead at their residence in Hawthorne.
