Woman killed after alleged fight in Redding motel

From Niesha Lofing:

Redding police are looking for information about a fight between two women at a motel that ended in one woman's death Wednesday.

Police were called at 6:52 p.m. to the Capri Motel on Westside Road in the city's south area off of Highway 273 to investigate a disturbance, a police news release states.

Officers were flagged down by a man in one of the motel rooms who pointed them to the body of a woman lying on the floor, the release states.

Paramedics arrived and confirmed the woman's death, but the cause of her death remains undetermined, pending an autopsy.

Officers found three other people inside the room and took them to the police department for questioning.

The investigation revealed that the woman died after a fight with another woman, police said.

Linda Sue Aguilar, 58, of Redding, was arrested on suspicion of murder. She is being held without bail in Shasta County Jail.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Redding police at (530) 225-4214.
