Chun Yong Oh is accused of striking Hwa Cha Pak multiple times with a brick, the Prince George’s County Police Department said in a statement. She then called 911 to report the murder, according to police.
Oh is framed with first- and second-degree murder and was being held without bail, according to police and online jail records.
As per the report the killing occurred in a senior living facility, citing neighbors. The neighbors told the station that the women were longtime friends.
Prince George’s County police said in the statement that Oh and the woman “had been in a dispute prior to the murder” but did not elaborate. When police arrived, they found the beaten woman in a garden in the back of the building, and she was declared dead at the scene.
