The Rockford Register Star reports her death is the seventh homicide so far this year in the northern Illinois city.

Johnson's body was found Saturday around 3 a.m. Her children, who were home at the time of her death, weren't harmed.

A 26-year-old man who lived in the home is facing attempted first-degree murder charges, which are expected to be upgraded.

He was arrested after a six-hour standoff.
