Temple police investigating homicide, husband of victim arrested

TEMPLE, TX (KXXV) -

Temple police have arrested a man after his wife was found stabbed to death in an apartment early Tuesday morning.

Royce Reeve was taken into custody without incident after police found him hiding inside a tunnel in a drainage area.

Temple police were called out to The Kensington Apartment just after midnight, Tuesday morning. Officers arrived in the 400 block of Fryers Creek Drive and saw Autumn Alaine Reeves, a 35-year-old Temple woman, lying in the front room of her apartment.

Officers forced their way into the apartment and tried to resuscitate Reeves by giving her first aid and CPR. The officer's revival attempts were unsuccessful and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The body was sent to the Southwest Institute of Forensic Sciences in Dallas for an autopsy.

The initial investigation shows that Alaine Reeve and her husband were involved in a domestic disturbance when the stabbing took place.

Officers searched the area and found several items with blood on them, including a knife that is believed to be the murder weapon. Officers searched a drainage ditch near the apartment complex and found the victim's husband, 56-year-old Royce Reeve, hiding inside a tunnel.

Authorities are still investigating this homicide.
