Police responding to a report of a domestic disturbance at 14 Ashland Place Sunday morning found Pedro DeSousa locked in his bedroom. When police entered the room, they found DeSousa jumping from the second floor window. Officers also found the body of 33-year-old Rebecca Felteau.

Police quickly apprehended DeSousa a short way down the street where he was hiding under a vehicle. He was admitted to St. Luke's hospital for injuries suffered after his jump. He's expected to be arraigned today on a murder charge.
