GREEN BAY - An arrest has been made in what police are now calling the murder of a 26-year-old woman in Green Bay.
Police say they've arrested the woman's live-in boyfriend, 31-year-old Richard Scott Gardipee.
The victim -- who has not yet been identified -- was found dead in the basement of her lower apartment around 5:00 p.m. Saturday. The home is located at 944 Christiana Street, on Green Bay's west side.
Police say a friend of Gardipee's called them after Gardipee showed up at his home crying, told him he had hurt his girlfriend and appeared to have blood on him.
When police went to check on Gardipee's girlfriend, they found her in the basement. They say she had obvious signs of trauma to her body.
The woman's 4-year-old son was found in the home unharmed and has been turned over to one of her friends.
Police say Gardipee met them at the door when they arrived at the victim's home. He initially resisted arrest, but was eventually taken into custody. Police say he admits he and his girlfriend had an argument that became physical.
Gardipee is currently in the Brown County Jail on a charge of first-degree intentional homicide.
Police say there are no other suspects at this time and they plan to release the victim's name at a later date.
An autopsy is also planned.
