PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) — Authorities have charged a handyman with killing a 35-year-old Port Richey woman in her home.

The Pasco Sheriff’s Office said Kelly Bennett was killed sometime after midnight Saturday by “homicidal violence.” Her son came home to find his mother’s body in the living room and called police. Authorities did not say how she died.

Authorities were also investigating reports of a white male acting suspiciously while walking down a road near Bennett’s home around that time. Forty year-old Steven Clairmont Jr. was charged with first degree murder after investigators said they connected him to the crime scene. Deputies did not release that evidence.

Pasco officials said Clairmont had been living at Bennett’s home for about three weeks working as a handyman. A motive was not given.
