Police responded to a call from the Station at Othello Park Apartments just before 2 p.m.
They arrived at the location in the 4200 block of S. Othello St. to find the 50-year-old woman dead and her husband suffering from unspecified injuries.
The man told police his wife had assaulted him the night before. He said he woke up to find his wife dead.
It was not the woman's husband who called police but rather the couple's neighbor.
Police said they do not believe the woman's death is a homicide case. They did not elaborate.
The woman's name has not been released, and her cause of death has not been determined.
