MONROEVILLE, Pa. — A man was arrested at a Monroeville motel after he was found standing, covered in blood, outside a room where a woman’s mutilated body was discovered, according to police.

Allegheny County police officers were dispatched to the Rodeway Inn around 9:30 a.m. Saturday for a large amount of blood found outside a room.

When they arrived, they found Matthew Gribschaw, 37, standing outside, covered in blood, according to police.
