Aurora Police say Shawn Lopez attacked 67 year-old Francine Reade during a robbery.

He's expected to be charged with first degree murder and aggravated robbery.

Police say that just before 10 p.m. Thursday, April 25, they were called to the 1500-block of East Colfax Avenue on a welfare check. The caller reported that a woman, in a wheelchair, had come from behind the businesses on the north side of Colfax Avenue. She appeared to be injured.

When police arrived they rushed the woman to a local hospital. She was pronounced dead a short time later.
