WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say they have made an arrest in the slaying of a New Jersey woman who was beaten to death while house-sitting.

Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton says additional details will be announced at a news conference Friday afternoon.

Twenty-six-year-old Shawneeq Carter was found dead inside the Woodbury home of an acquaintance on Sept. 23.

Her father told WPVI-TV in Philadelphia that his daughter's 5-year-old son found her body but did not seek help until the next day.

Sean Carter said his grandson and a 5-year-old nephew were sleeping when the attack occurred and say they don't know what happened.
