A La Verkin, Washington County, man is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in connection with the death last week of a La Verkin woman.

The woman, 46, was found dead Friday inside her home, said Washington County Undersheriff John Neighbor. She had apparently been strangled, he said.Police are withholding the victim's name pending notification of relatives.

Having not seen her for several days, the victim's neighbors called the sheriff's office Friday morning.

Deputies arrested Jeff Park, 28, La Verkin, about 10 p.m. Friday and booked him into the Washington County Jail for investigation of first-degree murder, said Neighbor.

Neighbor described Park and the victim as "acquaintances."

Investigators are still trying to determine a motive.
