(CNN) The Asian woman who was attacked last year in Queens by a man with a rock died Monday, her family announced on a GoFundMe page dedicated to her.
In November, GuiYing Ma, 61, was sweeping the sidewalk of an empty property in Jackson Heights when a man allegedly struck her in the head repeatedly with a large rock, injuring her face and head, police said at the time.
A day after the attack, the New York Police Department arrested a 33-year-old man in connection with the crime.
That man was later identified as Elisaul Perez.
Perez faces three felony charges, including a charge of assault with intent to disfigure and dismember and a charge of assault with intent to seriously injure someone with a weapon.
Perez is scheduled to appear in court on April 12 for another hearing.
Queens Law Associates' Attorney David Strachan, who represents Perez, declined to comment. »
