CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say the death of a woman whose body was discovered insider her Camden home is being investigated as a homicide.

Camden County Prosecutor Warren Faulk says 49-year-old Alma Brito was found around 11 a.m. Monday by a relative who had gone to her Hartford Road home in the city’s Fairview section.

Faulk said appears that Brito had been dead “for some time,” but declined to provide further details.

A cause of death has not yet been determined.
