The Noble County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of a woman on Saturday evening in Caldwell.

According to reports, a village police officer was dispatched Saturday to an apartment on Spruce Street in Caldwell. 
43-year-old Alberta Crawford reported, at that time, that she had been assaulted by her neighbor, 48-year-old Edgar Poland. 
Poland was located just a few blocks from the apartment building, taken into custody and transported to the Noble County Jail.
When the officer returned to finish his report and check on Crawford, she didn't answer her door. 
The Sheriff's Office reported the officer looked through a window to see Crawford lying on the floor. 
The Stark County Coroner's Office will perform an autopsy.
Poland is being held on unrelated charges.
