ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) -  An Arlington man is behind bars after his wife was found murdered.

Officers were called to the couple's home at the Windsprint Apartments on Park Village Dr. shortly before 7:00 this morning.

"The only thing the officers knew was that a female had been assaulted at the residence," says Arlington Police Sgt. Karen Standback. "Once they arrived, they located the female unconscious in a bedroom."

That woman was rushed to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The woman's husband, Tareq Alkayyali, 36, was taken into custody at the scene.

He's in the Arlington Jail, charged with murder.

The circumstances surrounding the murder are unclear at this time.

"All investigators believe right now is that some type of physical disturbance occurred between husband and wife," says Sgt. Standback, "and they're still trying to figure out exactly what happened."

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office has not yet released the woman's identity or the cause of her death.
