Police in Aberdeen say a hotel owner was found dead Wednesday afternoon and another woman is under arrest.

Emergency crews called to the Aberdeen Guesthouse Inn about 4 p.m. found a woman, 53, dead in the lobby. Police said her injuries were “consistent with a bladed object.”

About 20 minutes later, police responded to a call a few blocks away involving another woman with blood on her hands and clothes. Police said the 35-year-old Aberdeen resident had small cuts on her hands and was arrested in connection with the homicide investigation.

She was expected to appear in court Thursday. Police said she previously lived at the Guesthouse Inn and has a history of physical violence.

Police said the victim was “one of the owner/operators of the Guesthouse Inn.”

The investigation is ongoing.
