According to Fox News, authorities say Williams and another woman, identified as Candace Tai Townsel, 39, followed the victim into a restroom at Pechanga Resort Casino near Temecula, Calif., on Aug. 31. From there, the suspects allegedly cracked the woman’s skull as they stole her purse, which contained $800 to $1,200. The victim, identified as Afaf Anis Assad, died just four days later, the the Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif., reported.

“Williams has a violent history and targeted a feeble elderly female and robbed her,” an investigator wrote in a report, according to the newspaper. Williams has been charged for the crime. Her aunt, Denise Woodard told the newspaper she didn’t know if Leonard had reached out to his sister or other family members after the arrest, but she made it clear “he didn’t have anything to do with this.”

Fox notes that Williams has prior convictions on theft and robbery charges, the newspaper reported. Williams and Townsel are expected to be arraigned Sept. 19.
