A homicide investigation was under way in Simi Valley after a woman's body was found on Wednesday.

Authorities responded to a report of a family disturbance in the 2100 block of Lupin Street at about 4:30 p.m. When they arrived, they found a woman in her 30s dead inside the house.

Neighbors said they heard a commotion.

"Her oldest daughter had walked in and saw her [mother] dead, so she came out screaming," said neighbor Sierra Minor.

The victim has not yet been identified. Police arrested Jose Monteroso, a man considered a person of interest. He was in a car near the home.

Family friends said Monteroso is the dead woman's husband. They said he lived with the victim and her two children from a different relationship.

Authorities did not reveal how the woman died. The case remains under investigation.
