CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Homicide detectives said a suspect has been arrested in the apparent fatal beating of a 38-year-old woman.

The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the victim as Carly M. Capek, of Cleveland.

According to Cleveland police, officers initially responded to a West 78th Street residence near Elton Court on Tuesday before 1 p.m. after multiple people called 911 to report a man was assaulting a woman.
