Woman Killed Over Glass Cleaning

Philadelphia police say a 64-year-old woman found dead in her northeast Philadelphia home Friday was killed by her roommate over "the proper way to wash a glass."

Police say 20-year-old Jerry Jean assaulted and killed 64-year-old Jocelyne Desay in her Hasbrook Avenue home on April 5th. Police say he assaulted her, stabbed her in the neck multiple times, wrapped her in bed linens and put her body between a wall and her bed.

Jean cleaned up the home following Desay's murder and continued living there. Jean was arrested and will be charged with murder, abuse of a corpse and possession of an instrument of crime.

The victim's body was found Friday when police went to her home for a wellness check after her family had not heard from her in days.
