RCMP have released the name of a woman who died following an apparent domestic dispute in northern Alberta.

Police say 30-year-old Dawn Lynn O'Donald of Wembley died in the Grande Prairie hospital after officers found her outside a residence Saturday evening with numerous cuts to her body.

A 32-year-old man who was known to O'Donald was arrested a short distance away.
