Authorities identify woman found dead in fire, make arrest

ANDOVER (AP) — Authorities have made an arrest after a fatal fire in Andover and identified a woman found dead inside the building.

Authorities recovered a body from the rubble of an apartment fire in the northeastern South Dakota town on Friday. The victim has been identified as 25-year-old Tawny Rockwood, of Andover.

Attorney General Marty Jackley and Day County State's Attorney Danny Smeins say a 36-year-old Aberdeen man has been arrested on a domestic violence aggravated assault charge. They say the charge stems from the man's alleged conduct before the fire.

Authorities didn't release the cause of death for Rockwood. The investigation continues.

The four-unit apartment building was destroyed. The cause of the blaze hasn't been released.
