HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- Authorities say a woman was attacked with a hammer in a domestic dispute and died of her injuries in Huntsville.

Al.com reports that neighbors called police to an apartment on the city's south side early Thursday morning.

Officers found 47-year-old Patrice Lanier lying unresponsive in front of one of the buildings. Paramedics took her to Huntsville Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Huntsville police spokesman Darryl Lawson says 45-year-old Anderson McCaulley has been arrested in the woman's death, and details on the relationship between the two are unclear.

Jail records show that McCaulley was booked just before noon Thursday and is charged with two counts of murder.
