BROWNSTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -- A Brownstown Township mother was brutally killed in her own home.  Investigators have now identified a person of interest and say an arrest could come very soon.

"She was just a real quiet woman, kept her house up real nice," said neighbor Tim Reaid.

However, the house that was once known for its beautiful flowers is now surrounded by crime tape, a frightening reminder of what happened inside Tuesday night.

46-year-old Zita Kvasys was murdered.  Investigators believe it happened shortly after she got home from work around 6:00 p.m.  Her body wasn't discovered until Wednesday afternoon.

"The daughter called couple of times checking on the mom because she hadn't answered her phone, and I guess the daughter sent a friend over there and the friend found her," said neighbor Lori Rose.

Police say Kvasys was shot to death.  They have questioned both her ex-husband and her boyfriend.  Neighbors say she seemed to have a good relationship with both.

"Her ex-husband used to come around and cut her grass every once in a while," Reaid told us.

Meanwhile, the neighborhood hopes officers make an arrest very soon.

"My girlfriend, she's freaking out.  She wouldn't even take a shower last night until I (came) home," Reaid said.

"Scary because it happened right next door to us," said Rose.

Investigators planned to head back to the victim's home Thursday evening to gather more evidence.
