Police tell us that drug overdose call turned out to be a murder.

The victim, a 26-year-old female.

Lincoln Police were called to the College Park Apartment complexes they're located at 335 West Charleston Street.

A relative called police around eight o'clock last night saying someone had overdosed on drugs.

But when they arrived on the scene, it wasn't what they had expected.

Police say they found the dead body of a 26-year old, who is believed to be the girlfriend of 43-year-old Robert Dunkin, who lived at the residence.

Many apartment residents know Dunkin, because he's the apartment's maintence man, and they say he was a friendly person.

Dunkin was taken to the hospital and was immediately arrested after that for first degree murder.

Police aren't releasing the identity of the victim, until later on this afternoon.

She's believed to be Dunkin's girlfriend.

As for the suspect's criminal history...police say just two minor incidences, none of them were violent.
