DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have released the name of a woman whose body was found in a north Warren County home.

She’s been identified as 25-year-old Mercedes Wathen, of Cambridge. Officers and medics were called to the home just south of Des Moines around 7:30 a.m. Monday.

An 18-year-old man has been taken into custody as a material witness. Online court records don’t show that he’s been charged.
