Jul. 17, 2017
LANCASTER, Calif. (AP) — Police say a 30-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a technician he called to his Southern California home to repair an appliance.
Los Angeles County sheriff's officials say detectives found evidence at William Hughes' Lancaster home that connected him to the death of Lyndi Fisher.
The 36-year-old woman was found Friday suffering from blunt force trauma and died at the scene.
Detectives say Hughes was arrested Sunday after telling conflicting stories to investigators.
He initially told them he stepped out of his home while Fisher made the repair and returned to find her unconscious on the floor.
He was held on $2 million bail. It wasn't immediately known if he has an attorney.
The Los Angeles Times says (http://lat.ms/2tjbtCe ) Fisher, who worked for Arrow Appliance, was on the last service call of her workday.
