REDMOND, Wash. (AP) — Authorities say police have arrested the wife of a 26-year-old woman found dead in her apartment in the Seattle suburb of Redmond.

The Seattle Times reports detectives found the body with “significant signs of violence” in the apartment around 9 p.m. Tuesday after their roommate checked their bedroom.

Police say initial evidence suggests the woman’s body had been in the apartment for several days.

Redmond police spokeswoman Andrea Wolf-Buck says officers arrested the victim’s wife, a 26-year-old woman, on Wednesday in Redmond.

Wolf-Buck says the woman was booked into King County Jail on suspicion of homicide.

Neither of the women’s names has been released.

Police didn’t release details of the woman’s injuries or whether a weapon was found.
