ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Police in Albuquerque say a man has been arrested in connection with the death of his wife.

They say 59-year-old Albert Gene Miller was taken into custody Sunday.

A homicide investigation was initiated shortly before 1 a.m. after a woman was found dead inside a house.

The woman later was identified as 53-year-old Yvette Montoya.

Police say detectives interviewed Miller and arrested him.

They say Miller is jailed on suspicion of an open count of first-degree murder.

Police didn’t immediately say how Montoya died.

It’s unclear if Miller has a lawyer yet.
