A 58-year-old woman was found murdered in her Beverly Hills home yesterday.

Police discovered the murder when they went to check on the woman yesterday around 2 p.m. She was already dead in her home in the 100 block of North Hamilton Drive. Later on, they arrested a suspect at an office building nearby who they believe knows the woman, according to Beverly Hills Patch.

Right now police aren't giving out the name of the woman, the suspect or any possible motive for the killer.

The murder is the first for Beverly Hills in 2011 and the first since publicist Ronni Chasen was killed last November. However, another man was found stabbed to death last month in his apartment near the Beverly Center, not far from this homicide.
