ROYALTON: Woman charged with attempted murder

ROYALTON — A Royalton woman was charged with attempted murder after she allegedly tried to kill another person following a lengthy domestic incident.

Deborah A. Kozody, 49, 5324 Royalton Center Road, was charged Tuesday with one count of second-degree attempted murder.

The arrest came after an investigation into a domestic incident involving Kozody and another person, though authorities did not say whether that person was male or female.

The victim was an adult family member, the report said.

The alleged incident took place about 7:36 a.m. Tuesday, after a domestic incident that reportedly escalated over a 24-hour period.

Kozody allegedly tried to suffocate the victim.

Sheriff’s deputies responded to the home after a call from a concerned third party, the report said.

The victim did sustain injuries, but did not require hospitalization, the report said.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating the incident.

Kozody was arraigned Tuesday in Royalton Town Court and held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

She remains at the Niagara County Jail pending a medical evaluation and a future court appearance.
