TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Kathleen Deluche, 43, has been identified as the woman found dead in a duplex on Sunday morning after her friend went to check on her.

Sgt. Pete Dugan with Tucson Police tells KGUN9 that officers responded to the 3000 block of North Geronimo, near Ft. Lowell and 1st Avenue, at 10:20 a.m.

A neighbor was checking on a friend when they discovered the woman in the home with obvious signs of trauma.  She was pronounced deceased on scene, said Dugan.

There was a small child found in home, but the relation to the deceased female is unknown. The child is OK, and is being cared for according to police.

On March 31, detectives obtained an arrest warrant for 26-year-old Antonio Moore in connection with the homicide.

Police located Moore with the help of U.S. Marshals. He has been booked and charged on one count of first degree murder.
