INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– A woman who was found deceased in a south side home late Monday night died from massive sharp force and blunt force injuries to the head, announced Marion County Coroner’s Office Wednesday. 

Officers arrived to the house in the 1800 block of Singleton Road, where they found 24-year-old Shanna Elmore dead.

Her boyfriend, Cory Musick, was arrested in connection with her death and transported to the Marion County Jail on a preliminary charge of murder.

Police said there has been a history of police calls to the house, one was as recent as last Friday. The couple has also been listed in several police reports and have both been arrested on domestic battery charges.
