BALTIMORE (AP) -- Police are investigating the slaying of a 51-year-old woman inside her east Baltimore home.
Police identified the victim Saturday as Kimberly Leto. Her body was found on Friday morning. Police say she suffered massive trauma but haven't provided many details about her death. An autopsy is being conducted.
Leto's slaying was the 27th homicide in Baltimore in the month of January, the city's deadliest January since 2007 and its deadliest month overall since last June.
