FAITH, S.D. (AP) – Police say they’ve arrested a man for the killing of a North Dakota woman whose body was found at a residence in Faith, South Dakota.

The victim has been identified as 22-year-old Alytreus Clifton, of Minot.

Authorities say Minot Central Dispatch in North Dakota received a request for a welfare check of a woman in that city late Monday afternoon.

Investigative work led authorities to Faith, about 280 miles south of Minot. Law enforcement officers from South Dakota found the woman dead about 11:30 p.m.

A 25-year-old man was arrested for murder and will be transported to Ward County, North Dakota to face charges.
