Woman, 62, Accused of Strangulation



    A 62-year-old woman was arrested and accused of attempting to murder a man on Thursday night in Blue Sky Lane in Oceanside, according to authorities.

    Donna Darling was taken into custody after a 92-year-old acquaintance told police that she attempted to suffocate him with a pillow while he slept in his bedroom.  A caretaker who was in the home at the time of the incident came in the bedroom shortly after the reported assault occurred, according to police.

    Darling was subsequently arrested and accused of murder and elder abuse. She did not live with the victim at the mobile home community, according to police.

    The motive for the reported assault is under investigation.
