Is the female deadlier than the male, or are they equally as deadly? Join ASU professor and former forensic scientist Kimberly Kobojek for a look into the world of killer couples Monday, Feb. 11 from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Dobson Ranch Library, 2425 S. Dobson Road. ASU Presents: Killer Couples is a special pre-Valentine's Day look at deadly duos caught with the help of forensic science.
Kobojek received her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from ASU in 1993. After a short career in Cytogenetics at a private lab in Chandler, as well as volunteering for the Mesa Police Department Crime Laboratory, she began her career as a Forensic Scientist with the City of Phoenix Police Department Crime Laboratory. During her time there, she testified as an expert witness or was involved in a number of groundbreaking or high profile criminal cases in Maricopa County. Those cases included the Baseline Killer; Ray Krone, who spent 10 years in prison after being wrongfully convicted twice of murder and the A.M. Rapist.
Teaching science has been her passion, so after 17 years with Phoenix Police, Kobojek joined ASU where she is teaching, developing courses and serving as director of the university's Forensic Science program.
