ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) -

Police are investigating a woman’s death after she was found unresponsive in an apartment on St. Paul's east side Saturday evening.

Police were called to the Minnehaha Apartments on the 1400-block of Minnehaha Avenue East around 5:35 p.m. and have ruled her death a homicide. According to police, an apparent fight broke out between the woman and the suspect in her death -- Willie Chestnut, 54, of St. Paul.

Officials have yet to release the victim's official cause of death. 

The woman and Chestnut were apparently friends, and he was found a block away from the scene when police took him into custody.

Investigators have preliminary information on the victim’s identity but will work with the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office to confirm.
