NEW YORK (AP) - The 61-year-old father of a missing pregnant woman found dead in the basement of a Bronx apartment building has been arrested on murder and manslaughter charges.

Police say William Caruth was arrested Wednesday after the body of 39-year-old Anndrea Caruth was discovered at about 3 a.m. Wednesday inside their Baychester home.

She was last seen on Sunday and had been reported missing by her boyfriend.

The medical examiner says she died of strangulation and blunt impacts to the head. Police did not give a motive for the killing.

WABC TV says the victim was five months pregnant and operated a daycare facility out of the home.

Information on Caruth’s lawyer was not immediately available.
