A Pemberton woman who was allegedly murdered by her son died due to "compression of the neck and chest and blunt trauma," the Burlington County Times reports.

The body of Maryanne Rowlette, 71, was found in her living room on Sunday after her son reported a homicide. No one else was home at the time of the incident, and Herbert Rowlette, 44, was eventually charged with a single count of murder.

An autopsy conducted Monday also determined the manner of death was homicide, according to the report.
