CORNING, Calif. - On Monday at approximately 8:12 p.m., Corning police responded to a welfare check in the Marty Court cul-de-sac. According to a police report provided to Action News Now, police entered the premises once it was determined the victim was not inside the home. 

Police arrested 32-year-old Erik Deno, who was found in a bedroom inside the residence.

Neighbors tell Action News Now reporter Stephanie Lin they heard a woman screaming from inside the residence earlier that day. Other eyewitnesses later that evening said they heard Deno "fighting" with officers when they tried to make the arrest. 

One man who is staying in the neighborhood told Action News Now that he saw police find the body of the victim inside a garbage bin in front of the house. He described the body as "stiff" and "curled." 

Corning police have not yet confirmed whether eyewitness accounts are true, or if Deno is related to the unnamed victim. 

Deno is being held at the Tehama County Jail. We will continue to follow this story and provide immediate updates. Anyone with additional information is encouraged to contact Corning police.
