The Fresh Meadows apartment where the incident took place.

Fresh Meadows resident who tried to jump off the ledge of a Manhattan building earlier this week has been charged with murdering his roommate inside their Pomonok home earlier this month.

Chitwah Tse, 73, was charged on Tuesday with the Aug. 1 murder of 61-year-old Huizhen Zhan.

 

After becoming a suspect, Tse attempted to jump off the ledge of a building in Tribeca, but was able to be pulled into safety by officers, according to earlier reports. He received subsequent medical attention.

Zhan was discovered by officers from the 107th Precinct on Aug. 1 in her 65th Avenue apartment lying face up in a bed located in the basement. She was unconscious and unresponsive with a pillow over her face.

The NYC Medical Examiner later pronounced it a homicide; the cause of death was determined to be a blow to the head.

Zhan and Tse shared the apartment and were in a relationship. The motive is unknown and remains under investigation, according to police.
