Richmond, VA: Woman, 61, arrested after husband's suspicious death: IHIT

RICHMOND (NEWS1130) - A 61-year-old woman has been arrested after the suspicious death of her husband in Richmond yesterday.

Police aren't saying how he was killed but say when they got to the home on Aztec Street they found the husband dead and the wife conscious but completely incoherent.

Sgt. Jennifer Pound with the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team says they have spoken to neighbours to find out if anyone heard anything.

"At this point we haven't confirmed that it is a homicide," she says. "It appears to be a suspicious death. There are still a lot of answers that we are looking for as well."

She adds the man had an extensive medical history, but won't speculate if that played a role in the incident. An autopsy has been scheduled to confirm his cause of death.

The woman remains in hospital.
