TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The death of a Topeka woman found in a motel room in November has officially been classified as a homicide.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/19TMkil ) police confirmed the classification Wednesday but would not say how 39-year-old Lee Ann Keithley died, citing the continuing investigation.

A worker found Keithley's body the afternoon Nov. 16 in a room at the Country Club Motel on the city's south side. No arrests have been made, and police Maj. Jerry Stanley declined to say if any suspects had been identified.

Investigators had treated the case as a possible homicide from the start but awaited the coroner's report before classifying the death as a homicide.

The confirmation brings Topeka's 2013 homicide count to 12, including four related and still unsolved killings that occurred Dec. 1.
