The woman was found in the 1500 block of Lakeside Drive at 6:10 a.m. suffering from major head trauma. She was initially reported to be alive, but later died from her injuries.

Police have arrested her boyfriend in connection with her death, and the assault appears to have come during a domestic dispute, police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson said.
