Blanka's daughter found her dead after not being able to reach her during the day.

Detectives interviewed Spencer at the Sarasota Police Department. After that interview, he was arrested and charged.

Authorities have not released specific details about Blanka's death.

He is being held in the Sarasota County Jail.
