A San Leandro man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion that he murdered his wife last weekend, police said. San Leandro police spokesman Lt. Robert McManus said detectives met with the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office today to ask that murder charges be filed against 42-year-old Zoann Shipp for the death of his 60-year-old wife, who was found dead at a residence in the 15200 block of Hesperian Boulevard at 4:15 p.m. Sunday.
He said officers were called to the residence to ascertain the welfare of a possible victim in a domestic violence incident. Her name was not released. McManus said detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Shipp charging him with murder and arrested him at 4 p.m.
Wednesday at a hospital in San Leandro. Shipp is being held without bail at the Santa Rita Jail in Dublin, he said. McManus said, “Crimes of domestic violence often go unreported to police and such as in this case, sometimes end in tragedy. We offer our condolences to the victim’s family and friends.”
