NEW BRITAIN, Conn. (AP) - Police say a woman strangled to death in New Britain was the wife of the man charged in her killing.

Authorities identified the victim Monday as 33-year-old Johana Gallego.

Gallego’s husband, 41-year-old Luis Velez, was charged with murder in the death of Gallego, who was found unresponsive in their apartment early Saturday morning after Velez’s relatives called police to report that Velez was upset and may be a danger to himself or others.

Velez was held on $750,000 bail and was scheduled to be arraigned Monday in New Britain Superior Court. It’s not clear if he has a lawyer.
