FLATLANDS, Brooklyn — A 63-year-old woman was found dead in a Brooklyn home Tuesday morning with trauma to her head.

Her body was found in an Avenue J home around 11 a.m., police said. A 56-year-old man at the same address was taken into police custody for questioning.

No identifying information has been released by police, but neighbors and family say the victim and the man taken into custody had married just seven months ago.

The victim had lived in the Flatlands home for 15 years, area residents said. She and her new husband apparently fought frequently.

Their landlord says the two fought Monday night and the victim tried to lock her husband out by tying the door shut.

He apparently has bite marks on his hands when he was taken into custody for arrest.

Police have not yet filed any charges against the woman's husband.
