Authorities said police responded to a reported domestic disturbance at an apartment in Manchester on Tuesday.

A woman called 911 from the apartment saying "Damien" was pounding on her door, according to The Associated Press.

When police arrived, they found 45-year-old Jennifer Burpee dead. They said they found her boyfriend, 35-year-old Damien Seace, hiding in a bathroom, the AP reported.

Seace was arrested on alternative counts of knowing and reckless second-degree murder in Burpee's death, the news organization said. Police said Burpee suffered blunt force trauma from a piece of furniture.

He was arraigned on Wednesday in Hillsborough County Superior Court.

Police are asking anyone who was in the area of 55 Amory Street between 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. on Tuesday and may have heard or seen something related to this incident to call Manchester PD at 603-668-8711.
