A woman was killed and a man was taken into custody after a domestic incident in Lauderdale Lakes Wednesday, authorities said.

Broward Sheriff's Office officials said deputies and fire rescue workers responded to a home in the 3100 block of Northwest 39th Street shortly after 9 a.m.

The injured woman was found and transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

A man was found at the scene and taken into custody.

Authorities haven't identified the man or the woman, but neighbors said they are a brother and sister who are in their 50s.

The woman was known as Miss Pinky, who neighbors say was viciously attacked and beaten by her brother. The man came to his sister’s house almost every day, and she would cook for him and do his laundry, neighbors said. BSO has not confirmed the relationship between the victim and the suspect.

One neighbor told NBC 6 his security camera captured the entire incident. He said the video shows the victim’s brother hitting her with a brick or a cinder block, and then he simply went back inside the house.

Homicide detectives are investigating the incident.
