A resident of the Walnut Park Apartments tower in Egleston Square was ordered held without bail yesterday at his arraignment on charges he murdered Tanya Malone in his apartment Tuesday evening.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office, Alan Washington, 71, was upset with Malone, 58, his girlfriend, accusing her of stealing from him and then lying to him, so upset that he pushed her to the floor, then picked up a furniture dolly and smashed her in the head with it.
When Washington saw that his girlfriend was not moving, he went next door to tell a neighbor what he had done. Police and EMTs were summoned and Ms. Malone was pronounced dead at the scene with visible head trauma. An autopsy will officially determine the cause of death.
