High-profile criminal defense attorney A. Charles Peruto Jr. confirmed Sunday that a 26-year-old woman found dead Saturday in the bathroom of a Center City home he owns was his girlfriend.

Peruto, who answered the door at the three-story brick building at South 20th Street and Delancey Place, declined to comment beyond stating that the woman “was my girlfriend.”

The woman’s identity had not been released by police as of Sunday morning, but a police source identified her as Julia Law.
