A MAN has been arrested by police for questioning in connection with the death of a woman.

But police are yet to question the man as he was drunk when arrested on Friday.

The woman's body was found in her Valelevu home in Nasinu at about 7pm on Friday.

Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro said the woman was found dead with visible injuries on her body.

She said police were alerted after a tip-off by a resident in the area.

She said a suspect was in police custody but he was yet to be questioned.

"We have not been able to begin questioning as the suspect was heavily intoxicated when apprehended," she said.

"The suspect is in police custody and we will begin questioning as soon as he has recovered."

Ms Naisoro said the suspect was known to the victim and more details would be available after questioning took place.

She said police were trying to establish the motive and a post-mortem examination would be conducted later in the week.
