A former Nanakuli resident was shot and killed in North Dakota Saturday.

25-year-old Nicole Gututala-Hoff was shot three times in her car and outside her apartment building.  

Her ex-husband, 27-year-old Kevin Hoff, is being held in custody Monday for her murder. 

Initially, Hoff left the scene but later called police and admitted to the shooting, turning himself in.  

According to family members, they met while Hoff was in the Army stationed in Hawaii. 

They married in 2013 then moved to North Dakota, where they divorced in 2016.

They have two young children being cared for by family.
