MILFORD, Mich. (AP) - Charges could be upgraded against a 58-year-old Detroit-area woman after the death of her husband who was beaten last month with a crowbar.

The Oakland Press in Pontiac reports (https://bit.ly/1NqGmDt ) Sunday that 68-year-old Greg Cortis of Milford died Saturday in a hospital from trauma to his head and body.

Police found him Nov. 30 on a floor in their home. The family’s dog also was beaten.

Yvonne Cortis is being held in the Oakland County Jail on a $1 million bond.

She currently is charged with assault with intent to murder and animal torturing. Court officials have said she has a history of mental illness.



Milford Police Chief Thomas Lindberg says his department “will be working with” prosecutors to “enhance the charges to a murder case.”
