VIRGINIA BEACH -- Police identified the woman killed in what they say is a domestic incident early Monday.

49-year-old Irene Teague was found dead outside of the Barberton Apartments on Barberton Court around 4:30 a.m.

'I came outside where all the cops were and you could see the woman's body plain as day. It was really gruesome,' said Brian Wise, who lives at the complex.

Police have charged James T. Miller, described as an acquaintance of the victim, with her murder.

He was arrested in the 300 block of 16th Street around 5:50 a.m. and was treated for bites he received from the police K9. Miller is being held without bond.

The investigation into the killing continues.

Teague was a cook at Bentley's Restaurant and Lounge on Newtown Road. Coworker Curtis Bowens says he last saw her at closing time, around 4:00 a.m.

'She stopped me and said 'Hey Mr. Curtis. Wait a minute' and came up and gave me a hug as she always does. That's my last memory of her and that's the last time I'll see her,' he said.

His arraignment hasn't been scheduled, but it could come Tuesday afternoon.
