PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Police say a man was arrested after officers performing a traffic stop in Southeast Portland discovered a woman's body in the stopped vehicle.

Portland Police Bureau Sgt. Christopher Burley says officers stopped the vehicle Monday and saw a dead person inside.

He says 58-year-old Timothy Mackley was arrested on suspicion of murder and booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center.

Burley said Tuesday afternoon that the Oregon State Medical Examiner determined that the woman died of homicidal violence. The medical examiner hasn't yet been able to positively identify the woman.

It wasn't immediately known if Mackley had obtained a lawyer.
