TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say a suspect has been arrested in the death of a 61-year-old woman at a Tucson apartment complex.

Tucson police say 22-year-old Robert Ocano is jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder.

Police identified the victim as Lorraina Martinez Salas and say she knew Ocano and had given him food previously.

An employee at the apartment complex called 911 on Tuesday after the victim’s husband entered the office and said his wife needed help.

Police say the man had come home and discovered his wife with obvious signs of trauma in their apartment.

While tending to her, he reportedly saw the suspect flee from the apartment.

Police later located Ocano in the area.

It was unclear Wednesday if Ocano had a lawyer yet who can speak on his behalf.
