Spokane police arrested a 36-year-old man on suspicion of murder on Saturday after finding a woman dead in her vehicle in Browne’s Addition.

Medics received a call at 4:38 p.m. about a person slumped over in a vehicle near Elm Street and Second Avenue, police said in a news release Sunday. Police previously described the vehicle as a white sedan with Illinois plates.

While investigating, detectives detained Nathan A. Beal without incident from a nearby residence in the 1900 block of Second Avenue,” police said.

After interviewing Beal and obtaining warrants to search the residence and the victim’s vehicle, detectives arrested him on suspicion of second-degree murder. He was booked into the Spokane County Jail after midnight.
