Two men have been arrested in connection with the September 2007 beating death of a 90-year-old Port Richmond grandmother.
Alice Thurnau was severely beaten and robbed in the 3300 block of Thompson Street (near Port Richmond home). The robbers only got away with a small amount of cash, according to Philadelphia Police.
Thurnau was taken to St. Mary's Medical Center in Bucks County in critical condition. She died a month later and the death was ruled a homicide last February.
Both suspects were arrested on Thursday night. Warenecki was already in jail for unrelated crimes, according to police.
A tip at the time that the men who beat Thurnau fled in a red Chevrolet Blazer helped lead to the suspects.
The pair is being looked at for several other crimes against the elderly in Northeast area, according to police.
