Man charged in deadly break-in attack on 94-year-old woman

December 29, 2018

CLEVELAND (AP) — A man has been charged with aggravated murder for an attack during a Cleveland home invasion that killed a 94-year-old woman and injured her 74-year-old daughter.

Cleveland.com reports police allege 25-year-old Cornelius Pames Jr. broke into a home in September and attacked the sleeping women, who were in town from Honduras to visit relatives. Eucebia Garcia Gutierrez died, and her daughter was hospitalized with injuries.

Cleveland police say Pames pushed out a window air conditioner to get inside the home and stole electronics, jewelry and loose change.

Court records list no attorney for him in that case.

Pames has been jailed since October in a separate case alleging he propositioned a 13-year-old girl for sex. A message seeking comment was left Friday for his public defender in that case.
