NORWICH — Authorities say a 39-year-old woman found beaten in the driveway of her rural upstate New York home has died and her ex-boyfriend has been charged with attacking her.
The Chenango County Sheriff’s Office tells local media outlets that Lucinda Knoll, a mother of three sons, suffered severe head trauma when she was attacked around 6 a.m. Friday at her home in Norwich, 45 miles southeast of Syracuse.
She was taken to a Binghamton-area hospital, where police say she died Saturday.
Deputies say Knoll’s former boyfriend, William Danielson of Oxford, was charged Friday with attempted murder and robbery. The charges hadn’t changed as of Sunday. Police weren’t available early Monday morning.
Danielson is being held in the county jail. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
