STOCKTON (AP) – A man has been arrested in the death of a woman whose body was found in a garbage can in Stockton.
Daniel Winkler, initially detained by police as a person of interest, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of homicide.
The Stockton Police Department announced the arrest on its Facebook page.
Officers responded Sunday morning to a report of a possible dead person in a garbage can. They found a body wrapped up inside the can.
Police say a forensic examination conducted Monday indicated the woman died of stab wounds.
Police say Winkler and the woman were in a dating relationship, and detectives believe the death is a case of domestic violence.
The woman’s name has not been released.
