MURDER-SUICIDE:  Jose Soto, 48, ambushed his ex-girlfriend, Belinda Torres, outside a Worcester, Mass., a Compare Foods supermarket yesterday and shot her twice in the head before running back to his apartment and killing himself in an apparent murder-suicide.

Detectives found the body of Jose Soto inside his Sycamore Street apartment nearly four hours after Belinda Torres was murdered on the sidewalk outside the supermarket, police said.

Jose Soto apparently waited outside the supermarket until Torres walked out and shot her twice in the head around 6:46 p.m. Monday, police said. She was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.
