Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a man at a residence in northeast Houston.
Investigators say at around 7 a.m. Tuesday 86-year-old Salvador Badillo was assaulted by his 60-year-old girlfriend.
Police say Badillo stayed over at her house in the 7800 block of Woodlyn Monday night due to the cold weather. During that time the couple drank alcohol and eventually they got into an argument.
Houston police said Badillo hit the woman in the face with a bottle. She then used the same bottle to hit Badillo, according to police.
Both Badillo and the woman suffered facial and head injuries and were taken to a hospital for treatment.
Police said Badillo was taken to Memorial Hermann Hospital where he later died.
Houston police said this incident will be referred to a grand jury.
The woman's name was not immediately released by police.
