Leah Cuevas, 42, was ordered held without bail in Suffolk County District Court on Long Island after pleading not guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Chinelle Latoya Thompson Browne, a 28-year-old Guyanese immigrant who lived in the apartment above Cuevas.
Authorities did not provide further details of the killing, other than to say it occurred on July 5, in the Brooklyn apartment building where both Cuevas and Browne lived.
A statement a neighbor in the building gave to police said the two women had argued loudly the day before over complaints about no electricity, hot water and unpaid rent.
Mary Beth Abbate, a court-appointed defense attorney, argued during the arraignment that Suffolk County was not the proper venue because the killing allegedly took place in New York City.
