Maryland police: 73-year-old killed neighbor with a brick
BLADENSBURG, Md. (AP) — Authorities in Maryland say a 73-year-old woman is accused of bludgeoning her 82-year-old neighbor to death with a brick.
Prince George’s County Police said in a news release Monday that Chun Yong Oh is charged with first- and second-degree murder in the killing of Hwa Cha Pak.
News outlets report officers were dispatched to a Bladensburg apartment building Sunday morning for a welfare check and found Pak suffering from upper body trauma in a back garden.
Police say Pak was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say Oh and Pak had been engaged in a dispute before Oh struck Pak multiple times with a brick. Oh then called 911.
She is being held without bond. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer.
