Long Beach woman charged with attempted murder in domestic dispute.
Marlene Maggiore, a 46-year-old Long Beach resident, was
arrested and charged with attempted murder
after police said she pushed her
78-year-old mother down a flight of stairs in their East End home last week.
According to the Long Beach Police Department, police answer
a call at 5:19 p.m. on Oct. 9 about a domestic dispute at a home on Neptune
Boulevard, where Leonard Maggiore told officers at the scene
that his daughter pushed his wife, Josephine, down a flight of stairs.
Josephine sustained three broken ribs, lacerations and
swelling to the back of her head and pain in her left shoulder, and the Long
Beach Fire Department transported her to Long Beach Medical Center, according
Eric Cregeen, the department’s public information officer,
said that he didn’t have information on either the number of stairs involved in
the Josephine’s fall, nor their location in the house. Cregeen said Maggiore was
charged with attempted murder based on the police investigation of the
incident, but he couldn’t provide details about the nature of the dispute.
“If she intended to cause death and she caused death, then
it’s murder,” Cregeen explained. “If her intent was to cause death and she
didn’t cause it, then that’s attempted murder. If her intent was to seriously
injure her and she was injured, than the charge would be assault.”
Maggiore is listed as residing at 217 Neptune Blvd. with
her mother and father, according to whitepages.com.
