STOUGHTON, Mass. (WHDH) -- After the body of a woman was found in a Stoughton apartment, a search was under way for her estranged husband. He was arrested Monday morning.

Norfolk District Attorney Michael Morrissey said the body of 46-year-old Anita Clark was found Saturday at her apartment after friends became concerned that she had missed work and been out of contact for a period of time.

Officials said Clark's body was found, covered, in a closet. They said police found indications of a struggle in the bedroom area, and there were obvious signs of trauma. They said an autopsy will determine the cause of death.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of 47-year-old Willie Foster, Clark's estranged husband. He was believed to be driving a gray 2001 Pontiac Aztek, with a Massachusetts license plate of 4CTT10. The vehicle was listed as stolen.

Foster was arrested in Boston on Monday morning.
