Sheriff's Office conducting death investigation

Blount County Sheriff James Lee Berrong said the Sheriff's Office's Criminal Investigation Division is conducting a death investigation on a 45-year-old Maryville woman.

The victim's name is not being released at this time.

The woman's husband, 46, is in custody for investigation at the Blount County Detention Facility pending the outcome of the autopsy.

At around 2:30 today, Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a residence on Eagleton Road to the call of a sick person. When deputies arrived at the apartment, they found the woman deceased inside of the apartment.

An autopsy is scheduled at the University of Tennessee Forensics Center Thursday.

The Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigation Division is continuing their investigation.
