A man has been arrested and charged with murdering a 99-year-old Hudson Valley woman who was found dead in her home Wednesday morning.
Jovan Tyrek Rogers, 20, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder and robbery in connection with the death of Fannie Gumbinger, whose body was discovered in her Poughkeepsie home, according to police. Gumbinger was just shy of her 100th birthday.
The Dutchess County medical examiner had said that Gumbinger died of multiple injuries.
Gumbinger's husband died five years ago, and she lived alone, according to neighbors.
Police said Rogers is also a suspect in several recent burglaries in the area.
Information on an attorney for Rogers was not immediately available.
