FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A coroner says blunt force trauma to the head and face killed a woman found dead inside a Frankfort apartment.

Franklin County Coroner Will Harrod told The State Journal a subdural hematoma - blood vessels rupturing near the brain - killed 28-year-old Gypsy Reyes. Police found Reyes dead inside her apartment on Friday.

Maj. Fred Deaton says a friend who was at Reyes' apartment Thursday night told police Reed showed up and took Reyes to the back of the apartment.

Deaton says the friend heard Reyes scream and a noise, then Reed kicked everyone out of the apartment.

When the friend returned Friday morning, Reed answered the door and the friend saw Reyes' body covered with a blanket.

Jail records did not list an attorney for Reed.
