ELLSWORTH — Maine State Police arrested an Ellsworth man in the beating death of his wife on Christmas.

Police arrested 30-year-old Chris Saenz on Friday evening.

He’s charged in the death of 29-year-old Hillary Saenz whose body was found in the couple’s apartment Wednesday afternoon after Chris Saenz called for an ambulance.

Police say an autopsy has determined that Hillary Saenz died of blunt force trauma.

Chris Saenz is expected to make his first court appearance early next week. It’s not immediately known if he’s being represented by a lawyer.

Police say the couple have two children, aged 8 and 12, who are now in the care of relatives.

Police say this is the 24th homicide and 11th domestic violence related homicide in Maine this year.
