MILFORD, Mich. (AP) - An Oakland County woman accused of beating her husband with a crowbar two weeks ago has been charged with murder after he died of his injuries.

Yvonne Cortis was arraigned Wednesday in the death of 68-year-old Greg Cortis, who died last weekend. She’s also charged with animal cruelty.

A judge in Novi District Court set bond at $1 million. Cortis says she’ll hire her own attorney.

Family members have told police that the 58-year-old Milford woman has a history of mental illness.

Police say Cortis admitted to beating her husband and dog to put “them out of their misery.”
