Police: No charges in Raleigh assisted living homicide
Raleigh, N.C. The death of a 93-year-old Raleigh woman in an assisted living facility Monday was ruled a homicide, but no charges will be filed, police said Tuesday.
Rozena Barham Watkins died at WakeMed Hospital after being pushed by a fellow resident of Elmcroft of Northridge at 600 Newton Road in Raleigh on Sunday, police said.
Her body was taken to the N.C. Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Chapel Hill, where it was ruled that she died from complications associated with falling after being pushed and the death was ruled a homicide.
Police conducted an investigation and decided not to charge the woman who pushed Watkins, whose name was not released, because she "possesses pronounced age-related diminished mental capacity," police spokesman Jim Sughrue said in a news release.
