(Omaha) The 19-year-old accused of beating and raping an elderly Omaha woman who later died, will appear in front of a judge this morning on first-degree murder charges.
According to KETV News, Prosecutors say Sergio Martinez-Perez beat and sexually assaulted 93-year-old Louise Sollowin in her home Sunday. Sollowin died Wednesday.
Autopsy results showed that Sollowin's cause of death was blunt force trauma.
Martinez-Perez, who already faces charges of first-degree sexual assault, first-degree assault and burglary, is set to appear before a judge Friday to be arraigned on the new charge.
