CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Clarksville police arrested four people in connection with the death of a woman in a Wilson Court home.

Just after 5 a.m. Thursday, police were called to 108 Wilson Court and found 39-year-old Shirley Beck dead inside the home.

Police said Beck was beaten to death.

Late Thursday night, police arrested four suspects and charged them with criminal homicide.

Police arrested Alphonso Richardson, 24, Matthew Reynolds, 27, Derek Vicchito, 36, and Cynthia Skipper, 46.

Police would not say what led them to the arrest of Beck's four roommates.

"We've been here about three weeks," said neighbor David Demonbreun. "All of a sudden, we have a lady being murdered. Makes me wonder if we still want our children over here. It was saddening, y'know. We said a little prayer for her and her family and friends. Other than that, we're trying to keep our distance and stay over here in our yard."

"It's kinda scary to think it could happen so close," added neighbor Amanda Denson. "It's just horrible to think someone could do that to somebody."

Neighbors said Beck was a sweet woman who acted skiddish and often had bumps and bruises on her face. They said many in the neighborhood advised her to find shelter in a women's home.

"For the past week, every single day and a couple at night, there have been ambulances at that location," added Demonbreun.

Police said the frequent ambulance trips to the home dating back to September are not related to Beck.

Police said there are no further arrests expected, but the case is still under investigation. If you have any information, please contact Clarksville police.
