The husband of an Andover Avenue woman who was found dead in her home at about 3:25 p.m. Monday was being questioned Monday night by Buffalo homicide detectives.

Detective Chief Dennis J. Richards said officers were trying to piece together what happened to the woman, who was described as a mother in her mid-30s. Police have not disclosed her name.

They said her husband, Antoine D. Mattox, 32, was being questioned, but they did not say he was a suspect in his wife’s death. The cause of her death was not disclosed.

The dead woman’s two children and the family pet dog were taken from the home early Monday afternoon.
