HARTFORD Conn. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Connecticut woman is suspected of strangling her boyfriend during what police have called a domestic dispute.

Lt. Brian Foley, commander of the police major crimes division, said the 24-year-old woman called 911 at about 1 p.m. Saturday, claiming that she had a domestic violence incident with her boyfriend.

When officers arrived at the home on Wethersfield Avenue in Hartford, they found the 27-year-old man dead, police said.

Foley said there is evidence that the man was strangled, however, the medical examiner will formally determine the manner and cause of death.

The woman was expected to be charged Saturday night.  Foley said police are working with the Connecticut state attorney’s office to determine what charges should be applied against the suspect.
