Woman killed outside Pa. dress shop identified

FEASTERVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in suburban Philadelphia have released the name of a woman shot and killed by her ex-husband in front of their 16-year-old daughter.

The Bucks County district attorney’s office says 45-year-old Violeta Isackov was killed Thursday evening in the parking lot of a Lower Southampton Township dress shop. Her daughter was injured by flying glass.

Fifty-year-old Kenneth Philipp was later found dead after a shootout with police officers. It wasn’t immediately clear whether he killed himself or was shot by police.

The Bucks County Courier Times says the woman was planning to remarry later this month and was at the shop for a final fitting for her wedding dress.

Philipp had been released from prison April 2 after being locked up in November for violating a protection from abuse order.
