ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Police have arrested a neighbor in connection with the death of a 101-year-old Rochester, New York, woman.

The Democrat and Chronicle says 54-year-old Greg Jesner was awaiting arraignment Wednesday on a second-degree murder charge.

Police and firefighters found Marcia Morrison dead at her home on Tuesday. A senior transportation company had gone there for her weekly ride, but she did not answer.

Authorities have not confirmed the cause of her death. However, Rochester Police Chief Michael Ciminelli called it “an outrageous crime.”

Jesner was initially detained after a separate incident. There was no immediate information on an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
