A Maryland woman has been charged with murder for the death of her mother nearly five months ago.

Anne Arundel police are seeking the extradition of Kimberly Windsor to face charges in the death of her mother, Carol Windsor, the police department said Tuesday in a statement.

The 74-year-old died May 24, five days after she told officers responding to a report about an assault in Linthicum Heights that Kimberly Windsor threw a clock at her head, pulled her to the ground, pulled her hair, kicked her, and ran over her with a wheelchair.

In September, a medical examiner ruled her death a homicide that was caused by a cardiovascular disease complicated by the assault, Anne Arundel police spokesman Marc Limansky told the Capital Gazette.

Kimberly Windsor, 46, was at the scene of the incident in May and assaulted officers who were attempting to arrest her, the statement said. Police say the daughter also assaulted fire department personnel.

She was taken into custody after a struggle and charged with three counts of second degree assault.

After the medical examiner’s determination, police added additional charges against her, including second-degree murder. She has been jailed at a facility outside of Anne Arundel County since the incident and is expected to be extradited back to the county.

It was not immediately clear if she has an attorney who could speak on her behalf.
