MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police are recommending an amended charge of homicide for a woman accused of beating her mother on the city’s south side.

Thirty-five-year-old Vicenta Manriquez was already facing a charge of first-degree reckless injury. She’s accused of beating her 63-year-old mother, Shelby Manriquez, on Aug. 14.

Police said Thursday the mother died at a hospital Wednesday. So, they are asking the Milwaukee County district attorney to amend the charge to first-degree reckless homicide. Manriquez’s public defender did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
