Roommate killing: Orlando Police investigating first murder case of 2013

Posted: Updated:

Orlando Police are investigating their first murder case of 2013 after a man who they say was attacked by his roommate for urinating on their floor later died.

Police arrested and charged Shameca Brewster, 35, with second-degree attempted murder Thursday, but those charges will be upgraded to second-degree murder after the death of her roommate, Walter Tillman.

Brewster is accused of killing him during a drunken argument. She told police the pair got into an argument, and she tripped him and punched him in the face after he charged at her.

However, police say his injuries were consistent with either being shot or stabbed. Tillman was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center, where he died. Brewster denies using a weapon during the argument.
