A 37-year-old Queens woman initially thought to have committed suicide, died from a “vicious” beating from her jealous boyfriend who accused her of cheating, according to police and prosecutors.
Danielle Marrano and 34-year-old beau Shmuel Levine were arguing inside her apartment on Ocean Promenade in Rockaway Park around 2:30 p.m. October 26 when things turned violent, according to the Queens District Attorney’s office.
Levine allegedly put Marrano in a chokehold, prosecutors said. Her mangled body was found on the ground several floors below her window, cops said.
She suffered at least four skull fractures that contributed to her death — at least two of which were inconsistent with injuries sustained during a fall, according to prosecutors.
The city medical examiner’s office determined that Marrano’s injuries were caused by “unnatural blunt force trauma,” and the death was ruled a homicide, according to police.
Levine told authorities that he and Marrano “got into an argument about her cheating on me,” according to a criminal complaint.”
