CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

An arrest has been made after a woman was found dead inside a Clarksville apartment early Wednesday morning.

Investigators received a call around 2:30 a.m. asking them to do a welfare check on a woman who lived at the Sonoma Ridge apartments.

When officers went inside, they found a woman's body and signs of a struggle. Police are calling this a homicide.

The victim was later identified as 20-year-old Allison Tenbarge of Evansville, IN.

The suspect, 21-year-old Quentin Bird, was arrested without incident by Kentucky State Police in Kuttawa, KY, near Lake Barkley. Police said he had broken into a nearby trailer.

Bird is charged with criminal homicide.

Police believe this is a domestic-related murder, but it's unclear how the suspect and victim knew each other.

Neighbors at Sonoma Ridge said this is a quiet community with a lot of military families. They said Bird mostly kept to himself in his apartment.
