A 32-year-old wheelchair-bound woman was found dead inside her Brooklyn apartment, and her boyfriend has been taken into custody by cops, authorities said Monday.

Melissa Torres was found in the bathtub of her Clymer St. apartment in Williamsburg about 7:30 a.m. Sunday, cops said. Investigators believe she was likely strangled or suffocated, according to police sources.

An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.
Police were still grilling the unidentified boyfriend Monday afternoon but no charges had been filed, sources said.

Neighbors said the couple had a two-year-old son named Elisha.

“She could not defend herself,” said Torres’ pal, Pessie Gelb, 45.
A 59-year-old neighbor said she heard frantic relatives screaming for someone to open the door early Sunday.

"A family member was screaming, ‘Open the door! Open the door!’” the neighbor said.

"It's very hurtful,” said Doris Acosta, 33, who lives upstairs from Torres.

“It's very sad. She was a nice woman. This happened right below me. This makes me scared.”
