NYPD: Man, 72, found dead in Bronx nursing home

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) - Police say a 72-year-old man is dead inside a Bronx nursing home.

Police say they responded at about 8 p.m. Friday to a report of an assault inside the Bainbridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in the Bronx.

They say officers who arrived at the 200-bed facility found a 72-year-old man lying unconscious in his bed with a wire hanger around his neck. The man was declared dead on the scene. The medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death. A message left late Friday at the nursing home wasn't returned.

Earlier Friday, a 66-year-old man was arraigned on a murder charge in the beating death of his 71-year-old roommate inside a Queens nursing home. Police say that beating, on Wednesday, came after the two argued over a curtain separating the beds.

    If an iced coffee from Dunkin' Donuts is part of your afternoon routine, expect a nudge to buy a cookie or doughnut you didn't plan on. Dunkin' Brands CEO Nigel Travis said in a phone interview Thursday that the company is pushing to get its cashiers to "upsell" to afternoon customers. It's part of an effort to increase sales after stores have emptied out after the morning rush.
