Police in Corning have made a homicide arrest after the discovery of a dead woman. Monday night, officers were sent to a home on Marty Court to check on the welfare of the resident. They were unable to contact the person in question so they called back the person who requested the check and, based on that conversation, they forced entry into the home. 32-year-old Erik Deno was found in a bedroom and he reportedly became combative and was taken into custody after a brief struggle. Shortly afterward, officers found the dead body of the person they had been checking on. Deno was interviewed and then booked into jail for murder. The identity of the deceased has not yet been made public.
