EARLVILLE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have ruled the death of a northeast Iowa woman was a homicide. Delaware County authorities initially reported that 39-year-old Amy Mullis was fatally injured in a fall November, 10th at her farm northwest of Earlville.

The Iowa Public Safety Department said Friday that Todd Mullis reported that no one saw what happened - that his wife's death was unattended. The department says an autopsy report has since listed the manner of her death as homicide.

No arrests have been reported.
