Police responded to a 911 call for a suicide attempt in the 8000 block of Boone Road shortly before noon Sunday. They found the body of Ines Aguilar, 31, and talked to her husband Salome Nicanor Juarez, 33.
Officers "noticed bruising to Ms. Aguilar's neck that was inconsistent with the reported method of suicide," HPD says.
Aguilar was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.
Juarez has been charged with murder; police say he "admitted he assaulted his wife prior to her death."
