A 51-year-old man was arrested Wednesday morning after the body of a deceased woman -- reportedly his girlfriend, reality TV lawyer Loredana Nesci -- was found inside a Redondo Beach residence.
A distraught man called police at about 7:20 a.m. from a residence in the 1900 block of Nelson Avenue (map), Sgt. Fabian Saucedo of the Redondo Beach Police Department stated in a news release.
Officers were sent to the location, where they found the deceased woman's body inside, according to the news release.
The 47-year-old woman had been either shot or stabbed, Saucedo said.
Robert Reagan, of Redondo Beach, was arrested in connection with the investigation into the woman's death, according to the Police Department.
Reagan was the boyfriend of Nesci, a former Los Angeles police officer who became an attorney and was featured on television, the Daily Breeze reported. The couple lived together in the home where Nesci's body was found, according to the newspaper, which cited a neighbor.
The couple had a 5-year-old son who was safe, but it wasn't known if he was at the home the previous night, Saucedo said.
Nesci went by "The Legal Diva" and starred in "Loredana, Esq.," which aired for one season on the Sundance Channel in 2014.
Police would not confirm the victim's identity, saying her relatives had not been reached. Saucedo did say that the victim's name had been released by neighbors and news media outlets.
"The Redondo Beach Police Department suspects foul play and is investigating this incident as a homicide," Saucedo stated.
