WINTERSET, Iowa (AP) — Authorities in south-central Iowa have charged a man with murder in the shooting death of a Winterset woman.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says in a news release Tuesday that police were called to home late Monday night for a report of an unresponsive woman. Arriving officers found 23-year-old Rosanna Otto dead from a gunshot wound.

Police quickly identified 25-year-old Jerry Moyer, of Norwalk, as a suspect, and Moyer was later arrested by the Dubuque County Sheriff's Office following a traffic stop.

Moyer was booked Tuesday into the Dubuque County Jail on a first-degree murder charge and will be taken to the Madison County Jail at a later date.
