MADISON, Wis. (AP) – Relatives have identified a woman found slain in her Madison apartment as an epidemiologist who worked for the state Division of Public Health.  Thirty-one-year-old Jennifer Boyce was found dead Thursday morning. Police spokesman Joel DeSpain says her assailant broke into the apartment through a glass patio door, which was shattered.   Boyce’s stepmother, Dixie Boyce, tells the State Journal (http://bit.ly/14hwOWk ) that her stepdaughter was due in court Friday to finalize a divorce from her husband. Police cordoned off the home of Boyce’s husband after searching it later Thursday.  Madison police have not said how the woman was killed.
