Caldwell Woman's Death Under Investigation

Authorities are investigating the death of a Caldwell woman.

According to the Noble County Sheriff's Office, on Saturday a Caldwell City Police officer was called to an apartment on Spruce Street.  The sheriff said that 43-year-old Alberta Crawford told the officer that she had been assaulted by her neighbor 48-year-old Edgar Poland Sr.

The man was taken into custody and transported to the Noble County Jail.  The sheriff said the officer returned to the apartment and found Crawford on the floor.  The officer was unable to revive the woman.

Her body was transported to the Stark County Coroner's Office where the cause of death will be determined.  Poland is being held on felony charges not relative to Crawford's death.  The sheriff's office is continuing the investigation, and other charges could be pursued depending on the coroner's report.
