JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- Janesville police say a woman found dead in a home was the victim of an apparent homicide.

A Janesville Gazette report (http://bit.ly/TJMLOy) says no one has been arrested, but a man who was in the house was taken to a hospital with unspecified medical issues.

Deputy Chief Danny Davis says officers were called to the home Saturday about 3 a.m. to check on a female who was reportedly late getting home. Police forced open a door and found the woman dead inside.

Davis says an autopsy will reveal the cause of death, but police are confident they're investigating a homicide. He says the public isn't in danger.

The man's medical condition hasn't been released. Davis says it's not immediately clear whether he played any role in the apparent homicide.
