A preliminary hearing for Isis Ann Brown, 34, on charges she assaulted her aunt, who later died, was continued on Thursday.
Brown, of Solomon Street, Hanover Township, was charged by township police and Luzerne County detectives with aggravated assault, simple assault, criminal attempt and reckless endangerment after she allegedly threw items at Dorothy Koreny, 78, outside their home on March 28.
Koreny died on April 8 at Geisinger Wyoming Valley Medical Center in Plains Township. An autopsy showed the cause of her death was multiple traumatic head injuries.
Prosecutors said they might charge Brown with Koreny’s death.
Brown’s case on the aggravated assault charges was continued until June 4.
