HIGHLAND FALLS - A woman was found dead in her Highland Falls apartment Friday night after neighbors say a domestic dispute turned deadly.

The victim was found dead in her second-story apartment on Fort Putnam Street.

She has been identified as 62-year-old Junco Salters, a mother of three and grandmother.

Neighbors say they heard yelling from within the apartment, prompting one resident to call police. Neighbors say that officers arrived on the scene, then left, but later returned to the scene.

Salters was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police say a man believed to be her husband allegedly fled the scene in a black Nissan Maxima heading toward Route 9W. He was later located by police in Irvington, New Jersey, after he reportedly crashed his car. It is unclear what charges, if any, he is facing.

Friends say Salters worked at Walmart, and at one point as a dietitian at the Montrose VA.

They also told News 12 that Salters' husband is not the father of her kids, and has a history of drug abuse.

Salters' brother, Peekskill cab driver Terry Lee Camper, was murdered for money by his wife and her lover two years ago. His wife, Beatrice Camper, recently look a plea deal.
