A New York City woman has been accused of strangling an 89-year-old man who survived the Holocaust after being sent to Auschwitz.
Guido Felix Brinkmann, who used to run a nightclub in New York, was found in his bed with his hands bound Thursday. He had been beaten and asphyxiated, police said.
His apartment was messy, but there was no sign of forced entry, according to authorities.
Investigators said he regularly invited younger women to his apartment for sex. Brinkmann's doorman told police a man and a woman went to the home the night before his body was found. The two were later seen in Brinkmann's car.
Brinkmann was the former owner of a nightclub called Adam's Apple.
Angela Murray, 30, of New York, was arraigned Sunday on murder and robbery charges. Her male companion was being sought.
Murray's attorney did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
Police say a woman and a man in their 30s were seen going into Brinkmann's apartment on Wednesday, and later left through the basement garage in Brinkmann's car. Investigators are still searching for the man.
The car was found Friday in the Bronx.
Police said Brinkmann's safe, ID and some tax records were found in Murray's Bronx apartment, and phone records show she called Brinkmann sometime before midnight Thursday, according to a criminal complaint.
