LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have made an arrest in the first murder of 2015, after a woman was found dead in her home in an east Louisville neighborhood.

The body of 55-year old Anna Christine Fisher was discovered inside her home on Indian Ridge Road on Thursday night. Police have arrested William Crockett. They say he is Fisher's ex-boyfriend.

Jeri Schulten is the victim's daughter in-law.

"She loved us very, very much," she said.

She was joined by her husband Dan, his brother Matt, and sister in-law Carrie Schulten.

"Christmas was her favorite holiday," Jeri Schulten said. "We celebrated Christmas Eve together."

"It don't make sense," said Dan Schulten.

"He knew what he was taking away from us," said Jeri Schulten.

Police have arrested Crockett late Thursday night or early Friday morning. He is behind bars in Clark County.

"We took a warrant out on him this morning for murder and that's what he is being held on," said Lt. Todd Kessinger, LMPD Homicide.

Right now, police are still trying to determine what led to the murder.

"We went to interview him last night, at which time he chose not to give a statement, so it is hard for us to give you an exact motive," said Kessinger.

Family members believe the trouble started after the breakup.

"That idea that, 'If I can't have you, nobody can,' -- that's what I feel like," said Dan Schulten. "I kept getting that feeling when I came in here...that's what I feel like this was over."

Fisher's children didn't know Crockett well, but say there were red flags.

"We didn't think of him as being crazy as far as this kind of crazy...mentally crazy," said Dan Schulten. "We just thought that he kind of had a fake personality."

They're all looking forward to getting justice, but say there's really no punishment that will fit this crime.

"You can never get a loved one back, so he took so much from us," said Jeri Schulten. "And...her grandkids."

The visitation and funeral for Fisher will be held at Highland Funeral Home on Monday and Tuesday of next week.
