HAZELWOOD, Mo. (KSDK) - A person of interest is in custody after a woman was found dead in her home in the Knollwood Apartments. Her death is being investigated as a homicide.

Police responded to a check and welfare call in the 5400 block of Forest Creek at around 9:30 a.m Monday after relatives expressed concern that they had not heard from 27-year-old Denitra Jones. Police later found Jones dead in her home. Her family says she was pregnant. 

Authorities would not comment on a cause of death, although they did say that Jones was not shot. It's unknown whether the dispute was domestic.

A person of interest is in custody and charges are expected to be filed Tuesday.
