A woman was found beaten to death inside her home in Rosedale Wednesday and the incident is now being investigated as a homicide – with her dementia-stricken husband the likely perpetrator, according to published reports.

Gisele Dangervil, 70, was discovered by police during a wellness check with trauma to her head and body at around 6:15 a.m. inside her home at 253-18 148 Rd. She was declared dead at the scene, police said.

The NYPD has taken a 77-year-old man into custody as a person of interest although he has not been charged, police said.

The suspect is understood to be Dangervil’s husband, who suffers from dementia and is believed to have beaten his wife to death with his cane — although he has no recollection of the incident, according to multiple media outlets citing police sources.

Responding police found the cane covered in blood when they arrived at the scene during a wellness check on the couple, the New York Daily News reported.

The publication reported that the victim also suffered from dementia and the pair required a home helper to cook and clean for them.

It is unclear whether anyone else was in the house at the time of the incident.

Police did not provide any further details.
