San Pedro, CA: Domestic dispute reportedly leads to woman's beating death in San Pedro

A 58-year-old woman was beaten to death early Thursday morning in San Pedro, and her live-in boyfriend was arrested, police said.

Officers were called to an apartment in the 300 block of West 14th Street at 1:30 a.m., said Los Angeles Police Department Harbor Division Detective Louis Paglialonga.

The victim, who was not identified, was found dead inside her apartment. Her 53-year-old boyfriend was arrested and booked on suspicion of murder, Paglialonga said.

The victim was beaten to death but officials would not say whether a weapon was used in the attack. The motive was a "domestic argument," he said.
