PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. — A woman who Palm Beach County deputies said was naked and climbing up a tree near West Palm Beach is under arrest for murder.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Sheree Williams, 34, is facing a first-degree murder charge and made her first appearance in court on Monday morning.

The sheriff's office said deputies responded to a report of a suspicious person on Magnolia Drive around 9:15 a.m. Sunday. The report said a naked woman was climbing a tree and also running through the neighborhood.

According to the sheriff's office, the woman, later identified as Williams, was located and detained.

The investigation then led deputies to a home in the 1500 block of Magnolia Drive, where a woman was found dead inside.

Detectives from PBSO's Violent Crimes Division are investigating, and the motive of the killing is unknown at this time.

Williams is being held at the main Palm Beach County Jail without bond.
