2 ex-Temple University officers accused of killing woman

PHILADELPHIA (AP) " Two former Temple University police officers are facing murder charges in the slaying of a woman in Philadelphia.

Court records say 47-year-old Aaron Wright and 41-year-old Marquis Robinson were charged Saturday with murder, aggravated assault, conspiracy and abuse of a corpse in the death of a 24-year-old woman last week.

Police say the woman was found dead Friday morning in the city's Germantown neighborhood. It's unclear how she died. Authorities didn't immediately identify her.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports police have said it's a domestic case.

A Temple spokesman says Wright resigned in 2012 but didn't disclose why he quit the force. The university says Robinson was on officer until Sunday, when he was fired because of the charges.

Court records didn't list attorneys for the men.
