Woman's body found mutilated at Ohio apartment

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Police have arrested a man on a murder charge after authorities found a woman's naked, mutilated body in a northwest Ohio apartment.

The Blade newspaper reports (http://bit.ly/TUZbGB ) that police were sent to the west Toledo apartment at 9: 30 a.m. Sunday after a caller told authorities that a woman was found with her chest "open." Authorities arrived at the apartment to find 49-year-old Joan Annette Watson deceased.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

A message seeking additional details was left Monday morning with Toledo police.

A Lucas County coroner's investigator told the newspaper that the homicide was one of the most graphic ones he's seen in his 20 years of work.

A resident at the apartment building told police he didn't hear any commotion on Saturday night or Sunday morning.
