Aaron Collier, 62, faces one count of premeditated murder in the Wednesday morning incident, Broward Sheriff's Office officials said.

The woman was taken to Broward Health Medical Center and later pronounced dead.

Officials said the woman had been brutally assaulted by Collier, and witnesses said he struck her multiple times with an object.

Authorities haven't released the woman's identity but neighbors identified her as Collier's sister, who they called Miss Pinky.

Collier visited his sister’s house almost every day, and she would cook for him and do his laundry, neighbors said.

Collier was being held without bond Thursday, Broward County jail records showed. Attorney information wasn't available.
