The woman was found dead during a wellness check just after midnight on Lurting Avenue near Duncan Street in the Williamsbridge area, police sources said.

She has since been identified by police as Kayon Williams, 31.

Williams had trauma to her body and was lying face down in a home's bedroom when police responded. She lived more than 2 miles from where her body was found.

The medical examiner will determine her cause of death.

A 28-year-old man identified as a person of interest has since been taken into custody for questioning, police said.

The man dated the victim a "handful of times," but it is unclear what their current relationship status was, police said.
