Police investigate slaying of Berkeley Co. woman

MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — Police are investigating the slaying of a Berkeley County woman who was found in her home with her hands bound and a bag over her head.

The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office tells media outlets that 72-year-old Martha Tyler died as a result of ligature strangulation and smothering.

A relative found Tyler on Saturday and called dispatchers.

Chief deputy Gary Harrison says Tyler reported a break-in at her home about two weeks ago.
