Police say brutal murder in Yonkers appears to be result of domestic violence

A Yonkers mother of two was found dead in her home Tuesday afternoon. Now, neighbors say the victim?s boyfriend is to blame. The body was found early Tuesday afternoon on the second floor of a home on Morris Crescent. The victim?s landlord identified the victim as Doreen Caponara. Friends say this isn't the first time Caponara was abused by her boyfriend. They say it was only two weeks ago when she was beaten and rushed to the hospital. Now, many neighbors say they wonder if there was something they could have done to prevent her death. Since the investigation is ongoing, police have not commented on the reports.
