On June 27th, officers were dispatched to the Summereast Apartments located on 790 Bartlett Ave in regards to a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, law enforcement made contact with Reveca Roman, who informed officers that she and girlfriend Chynna Elder had been involved in a verbal altercation. According to the affidavit, Elder began to continually slam doors throughout the residence. The woman’s actions prompted Roman’s request for Elder to leave. Elder responded to this by slamming Roman against the wall and strangling her, per report.
