SAN DIEGO -- Authorities Saturday released the name of the woman who was killed in City Heights earlier this week.

Roun Choeun, 53, who loved ones knew as Ronny, was found unresponsive in her home on Estrella Avenue between University and Polk avenues by her daughter around 8:05 p.m. Thursday, according to San Diego police.

Officers arrived at the home and found Choeun inside with traumatic injuries to her upper body, San Diego police Lt. Chris Tivanian said.

Choeun pronounced dead at the scene, Tivanian said.
