Woman murdered in Belfast home - man arrested
Police are treating the death of a 53-year-old woman as murder.
Her body was found in a home in the Whincroft Way area of east Belfast on Sunday night.
Police said a post mortem is to take place but they are treating the death as murder.
A 42-year-old man has been arrested and is in police custody on suspicion of murder.
Police have appealed for information.
DUP MLA Robin Newton described the death “another dreadful incident" in the east of the city.
"It will cause concern right across the community," said Mr Newton.
"That the police are treating the death as yet another murder in this part of Belfast is very worrying.”
