Police are investigating a woman's death in southeast Lincoln as a homicide, and have taken her husband into custody. 

The woman was found dead at a home near 84th Street and Pioneers Boulevard shortly after noon on Monday. Police did not identify the woman or her husband, saying they had not yet notified relatives. 

Lincoln Police Capt. David Beggs says officers were called to check on the woman after she failed to show up for work. Beggs says authorities are confident that there's no immediate threat to the public. 

Police have not said how the woman was killed. Beggs says the investigation is still in its early stages.
