Stephanie Moseley and husband Earl Hayes.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police say rapper Earl Warren Hayes and his estranged wife were trying to reconcile in the days before he killed her, then took his own life.

Detective Scott Masterson says Tuesday that Hayes and Stephanie Moseley, had recently gotten back together.

The detective says Moseley, an actress who’d appeared on the TV series “Hit the Floor,” called relatives last week to say things were going well.

But police say on Monday, Hayes shot her and himself in their Fairfax-area apartment.

Hayes was an acquaintance of professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Masterson says police have asked to interview Mayweather following media reports that he may have spoken to Hayes before the shooting.
