Brooklyn Landlord Accused in Tenant's Shooting Death

Police have arrested a Brooklyn landlord in the shooting death of a 55-year-old tenant.

The NYPD says Jacqueline Wesley-Rosa was arrested Wednesday on murder and criminal possession of a weapon charges.

Police say the victim, Patricia Wilson, was found shot once in the chest earlier in the day outside the apartment building in the East New York section.

The 55-year-old woman was pronounced dead at Brookdale Hospital.

It was not immediately clear if Wesley-Rosa had an attorney. There was no phone listing for the 49-year-old woman.

Neighbors described Wilson as the mayor of the Linwood Street block. They said she and the landlord had argued for years over rent and other issues.
