Woman found dead in her Cameron Park home Monday identified

Authorities have identified the woman found dead in her Cameron Park home Monday as 37-year-old Rachel Winkler.

El Dorado County sheriff's deputies found Winkler after responding to a request for a welfare check. At the home on the 3100 block of Aeronca Way they also found the victim's husband, 45-year-old Todd Winkler.

Detectives learned that the couple had been experiencing marital problems and had a dispute earlier in the day, according to a news release from the Sheriff's Department.

Initially detectives treated Rachel Winkler's death as suspicious, but later ruled it a homicide. Todd Winkler was arrested on suspicion of murder, authorities said.

Rachel Winkler's cause of death has not been released, pending results of an autopsy, the release states.
