BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Police in Buffalo have charged a 23-year-old man with killing a woman who was the mother of his 1-year-old child.

Officials tell local media that homicide detectives tracked down Raymond Smith Wednesday in the city’s Black Rock section and arrested him. He was later charged with second-degree murder.

Police say Smith strangled 21-year-old Shaquilla Coston during an argument inside her home on the afternoon of Feb. 1. When family members were unable to contact her, they call police. Officers found her body in her bedroom.

Smith is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Buffalo City Court. The Erie County District Attorney’s Office says it doesn’t have Information on his lawyer yet.
