LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) - A Lawrence man is heading to court to face charges that he killed his girlfriend.

The Essex district attorney says 32-year-old Tony Ventura is scheduled to be arraigned on a murder charge Monday in Lawrence District Court.

Ventura was arrested Sunday night just hours after 32-year-old Maria Morton was found dead in her city apartment at about 6 p.m. Sunday.

The cause of death has not been disclosed.

It could not immediately be determined if Ventura has a lawyer.
