Woman found dead inside Plateau Mont Royal apartment

A 53-year-old woman was found dead inside an apartment building at the corner of Jeanne-Mance and Prince-Arthur streets in Montreal's Plateau Mont Royal neighbourhood Sunday morning.

Const. Danny Richer of the Montreal police said a 52-year-old man is being questioned in connection to the death.

Richer said a similar case happened in the same building a few months ago, when another woman was found dead inside an apartment in June.

He said an autopsy will be conducted to determine the circumstances and cause of the woman's death.
