In New York City, a homeless man reported to be mentally disturbed has been charged over the death of a Filipina nurse over the weekend.
What happened: Maria Ambrocio, 58, was walking in Times Square on Friday with a friend when Jermaine Foster, 26, allegedly knocked her down around 1:30 p.m., cracking her skull. She passed away on Saturday night.
The charges: Foster, who was arrested on Friday, was initially charged with robbery and assault. He was charged with murder following Ambrocio’s death.
What her family is saying: Ambrocio, who had been working at the frontline against COVID-19, had barely seen her family since the pandemic started. They questioned why Foster — who was arrested as recently as last month — was still allowed on the streets.
