A Manhattan man was arrested Thursday, accused of killing his 92-year-old roommate Thursday morning reportedly prompted by her incessant snoring.
The NYPD said officers responded to a 911 call of an assault at an apartment on Sullivan St. near Broome St. in SoHo around 6:50 a.m.
When they arrived, they found Veronica Ivins, 92, unconscious and lying face-up on her bed, police said.
She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Enrique Leyva, 47, has been charged with murder in connection to her death.
Sources said he and Ivins are not related.
According to sources, Leyva had called 911 on himself and admitted to the operator that he killed his roommate.
The two allegedly argued often and loudly in their apartment.
Leyva was expected to be arraigned Friday.
