PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The West Philadelphia man who called 911 to report he had found a female friend dead in the hallway of her apartment building over the weekend is now charged in her murder.

Police say 22-year-old Brandon Timmons of West Columbia Avenue is charged with murder, weapons offenses, and abuse-of-corpse in the death of Valerie Angeline, 31.

The former Bryn Mawr woman was found Saturday in the hallway just outside her apartment by police, who say she had been shot and stabbed several times.  Police say it was Timmons who called to report he had discovered her body.

However, police say, their investigation showed no signs of forced entry into the apartment building in the 300 block of North 64th Street.

Police haven’t released a motive for the murder.  They confirmed, however, that Timmons and Angeline were acquaintances.
