A woman in her 80s was found dead under suspicious circumstances in a Mission Viejo home Tuesday, and her husband was detained for questioning.

Deputies were called to a residence in the 28000 block of Via Arriaga about 1 p.m. regarding the death of the woman, whose name was not immediately released, said Carrie Braun, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies found evidence that made her death appear suspicious and were considering it a possible homicide, Braun said. The woman’s husband, who is also in his 80s, was detained for questioning, Braun said.

No further details were immediately released.
