A Redondo Beach man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of killing his girlfriend, a former Los Angeles police officer-turned attorney who starred in a reality show on cable television.
Officers were sent to the residence the couple shared in the 1900 block of Nelson Avenue about 7:20 a.m. on an emergency call "from a distraught male," and discovered the victim dead inside, said Redondo Beach police Sgt. Fabian Saucedo.
"The Redondo Beach Police Department suspects foul play, and is investigating this incident as a homicide,'' Saucedo said.
Robert Reagan, 51, was booked on suspicion of murder, with bail set at $1 million.
Police identified the dead woman as Loredana Nesci, 47, who was the star of "Loredana, Esq.," a 2014 reality show on Sundance TV that documented her home life and career as an attorney. Reagan appeared on the six-episode series.
According to the Daily Breeze, the show documented the couple's struggle with mounting bills, and arguing over the care of their son while Reagan was traveling to develop a beverage business.
Nesci became an LAPD officer in 1996, according to her website, but she left two years later to attend law school. She opened her own law practice in 2004.
