The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said the woman, Porsche Nicole Lloyd, died from domestic violence. Detectives identified a 44-year-old man as a suspect and charged him with murder.

CMPD officers were dispatched to the hotel shortly before 4 a.m. after someone called to report an unresponsive woman inside a room there. The woman died at the scene despite medical assistance from CMPD officers, MEDIC and members of the Charlotte Fire Department, according to a police report.

The suspect was arrested after a medical examiner ruled the woman’s death a homicide. According to CMPD, the victim and suspect were in a dating relationship.
