Poilce have made an arrest after finding a Bronx woman dead in her bathtub with a knife in her chest.Neighbors reportedly noticed a large amount of debris being tossed from the woman's 11th-floor window at the Skyview apartments at 5900 Arlington Avenue just after 3:30 a.m.

"I just heard a woman scream, kind of blood curdling scream," resident "Edna" said.

The victim is identified as 54-year-old Linda Jiminez.

Police arrested the woman's boyfriend, Anthony Silva, and charged him with second-degree murder, manslaughter and criminal possession of a weapon.

Large amount of debris, appearing to be the victim's belongings, were apparently thrown from the window to the grass in the rear of the high-rise apartment building. Items such as clothing, a big chair, a table, plants and numerous papers could be seen.

The Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
