FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - The Allen County Coroner's Office identified the woman shot and killed at an apartment complex Sunday morning.

Emoni Milynn Martin, 19, was shot multiple times and died from her wounds, the coroner's office said.

Investigators found her unresponsive on the floor of a bedroom at an apartment complex in the 7900 block of Serenity Drive on Sunday, Oct. 4.

Her death marks the 39th homicide in Fort Wayne and Allen County so far this year.

Thanks to some tips, investigators tracked down a suspect and arrested him the same day of the killing.

Ronald Williams, 31, is preliminarily charged with murder and battery with a deadly weapon.

Detectives told ABC21 the incident is likely a domestic situation, but authorities are continuing to investigate.

Williams had an initial hearing Monday where he was given no bond while the case is on a 72-hour hold. He's due in court again on Thursday.
