April 2, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
A 78-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of strangling his 74-year-old ex-wife inside her Pasadena home. Police went to the residence on Virginia Avenue about 10 p.m. Wednesday after receiving a 911 call from the couple's daughter. Officers say the daughter discovered her mother's body when she arrived at the home just south of East Colorado Boulevard.

Police say William Manson, who did not live in the home, was there when they arrived and confessed to murdering the woman.

Elinor Hill Manson was declared dead at the scene. Investigators believe the suspect killed Manson with his bare hands.

The motive for the killing is under investigation.
