GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) — Anne Arundel County police are investigating a homicide at a home in Glen Burnie, and a family member has been arrested.
Police were called to the home Tuesday to find Dianna Fitzwater, 62, dead in her living room. A witness at the home said she was found unresponsive.
On Wednesday, the state medical examiner ruled Fitzwater had died as a result of asphyxiation and ruled the death a homicide.
Fitzwater’s great nephew Brandon Zachary Duncan has been arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the case. He was at the house when Fitzwater was found.
