ASU Student, 19, Killed by Boyfriend Luis Soltero in Tempe, Police Say
The student's name hasn't been released at this point, but police believe 22-year-old Luis Soltero, the woman's boyfriend, murdered her.
According to Tempe PD, Soltero -- who does not appear to be an ASU student -- walked into a police substation on Apache Boulevard, and said he wanted to report the death of his girlfriend at 919 East Lemon Street, an apartment complex a little more than a mile away.

He told police that he had carbon monoxide poisoning, so he was hospitalized, as the fire department went to the apartment first to deal with a potential carbon monoxide issue.
Inside the apartment, the 19-year-old woman's body was found.
At this point, police apparently believe Soltero is responsible for the woman's death, as he was booked into jail on a murder charge, but Tempe police Sergeant Michael Pooley says in an e-mail that police aren't releasing any additional info at this point.
