KINGSTON, Pa. -- The coroner has ruled a death in Luzerne County homicide after an autopsy was conducted Monday on the body of a woman found dead in a vehicle.
Police have a man in custody in connection with the investigation.
An autopsy on the body of Linda Frick, 56, indicated the woman died from multiple traumatic injuries. Frick's body was found inside a car at a home in Kingston over the weekend.
Kingston police arrested Dana Ganjeh, 39, of Kingston, in connection with Frick's death.
He is being held on assault charges right now.
According to court papers, Ganjeh and Frick were dating.
Police were called to a home on Price Street in Kingston Saturday morning.
"I don't even know who they are, honestly. I don't really associate with too many people. a lot of older people on this street," said neighbor David Hall.
According to court papers, police found Frick badly beaten inside the SUV. She had two black eyes.
Neighbors are surprised to hear about the death.
"I didn't hear police sirens or anything. My husband didn't hear any of that," Laticia Jones said.
Court papers also say that Ganjeh's told his brother he had done something "bad" and that his brother would "find out" and that Ganjeh wanted him to "take care of their mother."
"It's shocking because stuff like that doesn't usually happen in Kingston. You know, you hear more about homicides in Wilkes-Barre," Hall added.
Police say they have been called to the home where Frick's body was found multiple times in the past for domestic violence calls.
There is no word yet charges against Ganjeh will be upgraded.
