BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Police have identified a woman who was found fatally stabbed inside her Birmingham home.

Birmingham police say in a news release that the body of 47-year-old Roselyn Welton was discovered on her living room floor late Thursday.

Birmingham police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards says authorities are investigating the death as a domestic homicide. Investigators believe the perpetrator knew Welton.

Edwards says responding officers were met by several family members who had gone to check on the victim after they had not heard from her in days.

He says he cannot confirm Welton’s cause of death until the coroner examines her.

No arrests have been made at this time.
