An Auburn woman was killed earlier this week in a domestic violence homicide in Kent, police said Wednesday.
Kent police officers were called to a hotel in the 22300 block of 84th Avenue South just before midnight on Monday for a report of a domestic violence assault in progress, police said.
When fire crews arrived, they found the woman, 33, unconscious and a man giving her CPR, police said. Crews from Puget Sound Fire took over life-saving efforts, but the woman died at the scene.
Police later determined the woman might have been a domestic assault victim and took the man, a 36-year-old from Auburn, into custody. He was later booked into jail on investigation of second-degree murder and second-degree assault, police said.
The relationship between the man and the woman is not yet clear. No further information about the homicide was immediately available.
