SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) — A Suisun City man has been arrested by police on suspicions he murdered his daughter-in-law with a hammer.

Amarjit Singh, 63, confessed to bludgeoning to death 29-year-old Shameena Bibi in their home Tuesday, police said. Her body was found Tuesday morning in the garage of the family’s home, where Bibi, her husband, 2-year-old son, mother-in-law and Singh all lived.

Police received a call from a family member around 9:45 am about the discovery of a body inside the garage. They found Bibi with blunt force trauma to the head and she was declared dead at the scene, police said.
