VIRGINIA BEACH – Police worked late into the evening Monday investigating a homicide in the city’s Chimney Hill neighborhood.

Police were called to the 900 block of Sedley Road in the Chimney Hill area around 2 p.m. for reports of a woman found dead inside a house.

“When I got over there, they were arresting the young man who fell to his knees on the grass, and they took him away,” said Maxine Young, a resident who lives next door to the house where the woman’s body was discovered. “The ambulance went away with nobody in it.”

Investigators have been questioning a person of interest, according to police spokeswoman Tonya Borman.

So far police have not identified the victim, and have released few details about what happened inside the house leading up to the alleged murder.

“I don't understand what went wrong, and I'd love to know," said Wonda Brown Smith, who drove from Norfolk to Virginia Beach concerned for her friend who lives on Sedley Road.

According to police spokeswoman Tonya Borman, it is an isolated incident.
