Hartford police make an arrest in teen's death

HARTFORD, Wis. (AP) - Hartford police say they've made an arrest in the homicide of a 19-year-old woman found dead in her bed earlier this month.

Police say a 19-year-old Hubertus man is in custody on a possible charge of first-degree intentional homicide. They have forwarded the case to the Washington County district attorney.

Court documents say Jessie Blodgett was found in her bed by her mother with ligature marks on her neck July 15. Blodgett's father, Charles, describes his daughter as a "spectacularly beautiful person, deep and soulful."

The man in custody is expected to make an appearance in court Wednesday.
