POCATELLO — A Pocatello man has been arrested for voluntary manslaughter after police discovered a dead woman inside a home Monday night.

Officers were called to 522 N. 8th Avenue around 10:50 p.m. in reference to a welfare check. When they arrived, they found a woman inside the home who was not responsive and appeared to have trauma to her body.
