OAKLAND -- A 43-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder in the death of a woman found slain Saturday morning in her East Oakland home, police said Monday.
Police are trying to confirm the woman's name, but believe she is the 69-year-old resident of the house in the 1700 block of 103rd Avenue.
A cause of death has not been released, but police say there was major trauma to the woman's body.
The suspect's name has not been released, pending a review of the case by the District Attorney's Office.
Police said the suspect may have lived at the house.
The woman was found just before 11 a.m. Saturday by fire crews responding to a medical emergency call. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The suspect was taken into custody at the house on Saturday. No motive was released, but police said it was not a home invasion robbery.
Police said the case is not related to a home invasion robbery Friday afternoon in the Fruitvale District that left a 77-year-old woman dead.
Susan Fong was found dead inside her apartment in the 1800 block 34th Avenue.
A 56-year-old male relative was also found in the apartment but was not injured, police said. Fong's cause of death has not been determined. Police said no suspects have been arrested.
The cases are not related to a Jan. 28 home invasion robbery in which a woman was shot in her home near the Mormon Temple, police said.
