AKRON, Ohio (AP) – A woman accused of killing her mother during a domestic dispute inside an Akron home has pleaded not guilty to murder charges.
Nineteen-year-old Sydney Powell entered her plea Thursday during an arraignment hearing. Her bail was set at $250,000.
Akron police went to the home Tuesday afternoon after a caller from the University of Mount Union reported concerns about Powell.
When police arrived at the home, they found 50-year-old Brenda Powell with severe lacerations, while her daughter had minor undisclosed injuries.
Both were taken to a hospital, and Brenda Powell was pronounced dead there a short time later.
