IRONDEQUOIT, NY (WROC) — The case of a man charged with killing his 86-year-old aunt in Irondequoit has moved to a grand jury.
Frederick Bohn faces murder charges for the death of Ingeborg Morely last month.
Police have released few details about the murder, but say Morely was found dead at her home on Lakeshore Boulevard after officers were called to her home for a welfare check.
According to court papers, investigators say Morely died from multiple blunt force trauma blows and asphyxiation.
Prosecutors say there is enough evidence to indict Bohn on the charges.
Bohn pleaded not guilty last Friday. His defense attorney says Bohn is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
The Assistant District Attorney handling this case, Monica O’Brien, works in the division of elder abuse and says Morely’s homicide case is very significant.
“I would use the word significantly absolutely. I work closely with Lifespan who’s reached out and done a lot of studies on elder abuse. Elder abuse is under-reported, especially regarding financial and physical abuse,” said O’Brien.
The case is set to move from Irondequoit court to county or state court going forward.
