Authorities say David Coon, 50, was arrested this morning in connection with the death of Shirley Clifford, 49.

A Bangor man has been charged with murder in the death of a 49-year-old woman, whose body was found Saturday in an apartment on Jefferson Street.

Authorities say David Coon, 50, was arrested this morning in connection with the death of Shirley Clifford, 49. Coon and Clifford lived at the same address, officials say. They say domestic violence was a factor in Clifford's death.

Bangor Police say they discovered Clifford's body after responding to a call from the residence of a woman not breathing. 

Clifford's body was taken to the state Medical Examiner's Office, where an autopsy was performed. Authorities aren't releasing the cause of Clifford's death.  

Coon is being held at the Penobscot County Jail.
