VENTURA, Calif. (AP) - Sheriff's officials say a standoff ended with the arrest of a woman on suspicion of attacking and killing a man inside a home in San Luis Obispo.

Sgt. David Kenitz said Sunday that the female suspect was taken into custody after holding authorities at bay for several hours.

Deputies arrived at the scene following reports of an assault. They found a man in his 30s dead at the home.

The woman, said to be in her 60s, retreated to an upstairs bedroom while officials called in SWAT officers and negotiators.

Her name was not released. Kenitz says investigators didn't immediately know the relationship between the suspect and the victim.
