LIVONIA, Mich. (AP) - A 50-year-old woman is charged with first-degree murder in the beating death of a 66-year-old woman in a suburban Detroit apartment building.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Monday that Tewana Sullivan of Detroit will be arraigned Nov. 6.

Livonia police arrested Sullivan on Wednesday night after officers found the severely beaten victim unconscious in the building, west of Detroit. Sullivan was visiting a relative in the building.

She was charged last week with attempted murder, and the prosecutor upgraded the charge after the victim died Saturday.

Defense lawyer John McWilliams says Sullivan is “under the presumption of innocence” and he will speak with her “to get to the bottom of the facts.”
