DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have identified a woman killed at a northeast Des Moines home.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/2hu7w4p ) that Polk County deputies called to the home for a domestic disturbance on Monday found 19-year-old Katelynn Rose Gould, of Urbandale, injured in the garage. She died at the scene.

Officials have not detailed the nature of her injuries.

Deputies say that when they arrived at the house, 31-year-old Nickolas Lee Pettinger was there, but ran from the home. He was found blocks away a couple of hours later and arrested. He has been charged with first-degree murder.

Pettinger remained jailed Tuesday on nearly $1.3 million bail.
