SUISUN CITY (CBS13) – Detectives say the woman found dead in a Suisun City home on Tuesday was killed by her own father-in-law.
At a press conference Wednesday morning, Suisun City police announced that 63-year-old Amarjit Singh was arrested for the death of 29-year-old Shameena Bibi.
Singh has confessed his involvement in the murder of Bibi, detectives say.
Detectives believe Singh became upset over Bibi allegedly being disrespectful. Singh confronted her in the garage then attacked her with a hammer, detectives say.
When deputies got to the scene, they found that Bibi had suffered blunt-force trauma.
Bibi lived at the home with her husband, 2-year-old son and other family members – including Singh.
Singh was arrested on probable cause for murder and has been booked at Solano County Jail.
The FBI and Solano County District Attorney’s Office helped detectives find translators to help with the investigation.
