NEW YORK - A Staten Island woman faces murder and strangulation charges in the brutal death of her 74-year-old mother.
The NYPD has arrested Mauri Belarmino, 40, for the murder of Sherylyn Bailey.
They lived together in a Ramapo Ave. home in the Woodrow section of the borough.
Police say they responded to a 911 call at the home around noon on Saturday. Officers discovered Baily unconscious in the home.
EMS responded and pronounced her dead. On Tuesday the Medical Examiner deemed the death a homicide due to strangulation and Belarmino was charged.
It was unclear if she had a lawyer who could speak on her behalf.
