Update: Rudy Litto appeared before a judge this morning and pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, felonious assault and vandalism. His bond was set at $250,000 according to 19 Action News.
It looks like a case of a bad roommate that came to a tragic end. 69-year-old Daniel Brown checked into St. Vincent Charity Medical Center for complications from a stroke. He was placed in a room with an ex-con who later attacked the partially-paralyzed Brown in early November.
The victim died Wednesday morning, according to 19ActionNews.
The police have arrested the roommate, Rudy Litto. Litto has long record that includes drugs and violent crimes.
