Preliminary autopsy results show that a senior citizen who died after being attacked by her live-in caretaker did in fact die of injuries sustained in that attack, says the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Officials say Mary Shaw, 79, died on March 9 after being attacked by Kimberly Sue Ricker, 45, on March 2.
Ricker was charged with aggravated assault on March 6. Her charges have since been upgraded to second degree murder and elder abuse.
Ricker's boyfriend, Wayne Clarence Jones, has also been charged with elder abuse and criminal responsibility.
Ricker is being held in the Monroe County Jail.
Jones is currently being held at Swain County Jail in Bryson City, North Carolina, on unrelated charges. Officials say he will be transferred to the Monroe County Jail at a later date.
