Man arrested in wife's death in Santa Clarita


SANTA CLARITA, California — A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of killing his 25-year-old wife.

The Los Angeles Times reported Monday ( that Robert Arvizu was taken into custody after Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies were called to the home for a welfare check and saw the woman's body through the window.

Deputies forced their way into the home and found Courtney Arvizu dead of blunt force trauma.

Robert Arvizu is being held on $1 million bail and will appear Tuesday in court.

It wasn't immediately clear if he'd retained an attorney before his first court appearance.
