Woman found beaten, strangled in Algiers home

A woman was found beaten and strangled inside a home in Algiers on Thursday afternoon, the Orleans Parish coroner’s office said.

Kinya Keller, 30, was found inside the home in the 900 block of Lamarque Street about 4:25 p.m., said John Gagliano, the coroner’s chief investigator. Keller’s death has been ruled a homicide, Gagliano said.

An officer who responded to a call of a female down inside the home saw Keller on the floor unresponsive, said officer Hilal Williams, a Police Department. A window was broken, and the front door had been forced open, according to a daily police incident log.

Police have not identified a suspect in the killing.
