An affadavit says Labrosse struck the man, who has multiple sclerosis, in the head in his apartment in the 6300 block of Nina Drive after an altercation upset her. It alleges Labrosse placed a plastic bag over the victim’s head and then struck him with a jar and a hammer. Previously, Labrosse pleaded guilty in 2011 to a misdemeanor battery charge for beating him with a hammer.

Labrosse will be sentenced next month.
