Renton police: Man says he killed girlfriend

Renton police found a 20-year-old woman dead in a South End apartment today after a man called 911 to say he killed his girlfriend.

Police say the man, 20, claimed to have booby-trapped the apartment, just before noon, and that he was armed. When officers arrived, the man ran back into the apartment building. He later emerged and surrendered without a struggle, police said.

Police so far have not said how the woman may have died.

Detectives think this was a case of domestic violence, but say the investigation is still early.
