Authorities have identified a woman who was killed last week at her home in northwest suburban Round Lake Beach.

Officers found 48-year-old Mariana Castro-Tellez dead inside her home about 4:40 a.m. May 17 in the 1500 block of Cherokee Drive, according to the Lake County coroner’s office and a statement from the Lake County Major Crime Task Force.

Task force spokesman Sgt. Christopher Covelli said Round Lake Beach police officers were initially dispatched to the home fore reports of shots fired.

The preliminary results of an autopsy indicated Castro-Tellez died of injuries caused by sharp-force trauma, the coroner’s office said. Toxicology testing is pending.

Covelli said a suspect is in custody and officials expect to announce charges Monday afternoon.
