A woman in Michigan is accused of bludgeoning her boyfriend, who died after doctors determined he was brain dead and removed him from life support, authorities said.
Two months earlier, on April 5, Srackangast phoned police to report Ryan Brouse was lying in bed at a Battle Creek home with blood flowing from his head, state court documents obtained by the station.
Brouse, 33, was rushed to a local hospital, and he died the following morning after doctors removed the brain-dead man from life support, according to police.
An autopsy determined Brouse’s death was caused by three blows to the head and a subdural hemorrhage.
Detectives investigating the case learned that Brouse and Srackangastgot into a dispute at her job on April 4. The following day, Srackangast’s employer terminated her employment via phone 11 minutes before she called 911 to report Brouse was injured.
Police said the pair had a history of domestic violence, and they believe the suspect struck her boyfriend over the head with an object multiple times, causing his fatal injuries.
Srackangast is scheduled to appear in court on June 27 for a preliminary cause hearing.
