Susan Dubois Marcinko, 61, has been charged with reckless manslaughter in the death of her 91-year-old father last October in Sun City West, Arizona

An Arizona woman has been charged with reckless manslaughter following the death of her 91-year-old father.

Susan Dubois Marcinko, 61, told police she found her father dead inside the courtyard of his Sun City West home last October.

The elderly man died from blunt force trauma and had more than 20 rib fractures.

Marcinko told authorities that she and her father had argued and physically fought on October 4 and October 13. 

He had been hospitalized after the first fight, according to AZ Central.

The woman claims that her father had Alzheimer’s and dementia and did not remember that he allowed Marcinko’s boyfriend to live with them in the home.

She also said that her father would believe she was his wife and would make sexual advances toward her.

She claimed that both fights began after her father attacked her from behind.

In order to restrain him, Marcinko alleges that she sat on her father’s hip area and held his arms down so that he wouldn’t hit her. 

Her boyfriend said he saw Marcinko sitting on her father’s chest during their deadly fight October 13.

She told investigators during a January 22 interview that she tried to restrain her father for 15 minutes.

Then, she dragged him by his ankles to the courtyard so he could ‘get some fresh air’.

He was found dead in the courtyard the next day. 

When she came back inside, she cleaned up ‘multiple blood marks’.  

Bail has been set at $30,000 and her preliminary hearing is on February 2.
