LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested a woman who was allegedly wanted for a murder that took place in Minnesota.

According to an arrest report, 38-year-old Lisa Kearney was taken into custody at 8 p.m. on Tuesday after a warrant for her arrest was found in a federal crime database.

KMSP (Fox 9) in Minnesota reported that officers found the body of Jeffrey Schilling, 66, during a welfare check on the 300 block of 21st Ave. N. in St. Cloud. Officers observed a large amount of blood pooling near the head of the victim along with several other blood splatters in the room, according to the criminal complaint.

The preliminary autopsy report says Schilling died from cranio-cerebral injuries from blunt force trauma. Police found a short-handed maul at the scene.

Schilling’s daughter, Lisa May Kearney, lived with her father, but was not at the home when police arrived. She is believed to have had a strained relationship with her father, according the report.

Kearney was found by Louisville Metro Police on Tuesday. She has been charged with second degree murder.
