Cincinnati (AP) -- Cincinnati police have arrested a man in the killing of a 93-year-old woman stabbed while walking outside her senior-living complex.

Twenty-eight-year-old James House III of the suburban village of Golf Manor has been charged with one count of murder.

Police have not said what led them to house late Wednesday and have not speculated on a motive for Tuesday's attack on Ida Martin.

Assistant police chief Michael Cureton tells WCPO-TV it may not have been robbery because investigators aren't sure Martin had anything to steal.

Members of the community upset over the killing held a candlelight vigil outside Martin's building Wednesday night.

House was expected to appear in court Thursday.

Jail records do not indicate whether he has an attorney.
