Man Arrested in Detroit Hotel Room Slaying

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) -- A 27-year-old man has been arrested in the slaying of a woman in her Detroit hotel room.

Police say tips led investigators to the man in Highland Park, an enclave of Detroit. No other details of the arrest were released.

Relatives identified 21-year-old Ninoshka Nieves-Figueroa as the woman shot to death April 19 at the Corktown Inn, a 140-room hotel just west of downtown Detroit.

Friday's arrest came days after police released a security camera photo of a man they were seeking to question in Nieves-Figueroa's slaying.

Longtime hotel owner Chester Mirowski says the man in the picture came in and asked for the woman's room just before the shooting.
