SACO, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Police have arrested a homeless man in connection with the death of a woman inside a  motel room in Saco two weeks ago.

State Police Spokesperson Steve McCausland says detectives arrested 39-year-old Lebon Bruno Saturday and charged him with murdering 55-year-old Elizabeth Williams. 

Williams was found severely injured inside a room at the Sunrise Motel on Route 1 in Saco on November 3rd.  She was rushed to Maine Medical Center and died at the hospital a day later.  Officials say Williams was homeless, and was well known all the Preble Street Resource Center in Portland. 

The State Medical Examiner's Office has declared Williams' death a homicide, but no official cause of death has been released.

McCausland says Bruno and Williams had been involved in a relationship for some time and the death is considered a domestic violence homicide.

Bruno has been taken to the York County Jail and is due in court at the beginning of next week.
