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.
