    A couple whose bodies were found nearby each other in Hollywood had a history of domestic violence and died in a murder-suicide, investigators said Thursday.

    A woman's body was found in the water at around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday along the 700 block of North Broadwalk, Hollywood Police said. That investigation led detectives to the 300 block of New York Street, where they found a man's body in a motel room.

    The couple was involved in an argument that turned violent, investigators said. During that time, the man killed the woman, and then the man killed himself in a motel room.

    Police said the woman and the man were involved in a domestic relationship for several years, and family members confirmed the two had a history of domestic violence.
