A 59-year-old Alamo man was arrested in connection with the death of Doris Penico on Thursday afternoon, Contra Costa County Sheriff's spokesperson Jimmy Lee said.
Police arrested Michael Littman at his home on the 3000 block of Stonegate Drive in Alamo at about 3:30 p.m Thursday for homicide, assault with a deadly weapon and felony battery. Police are holding him at the Martinez Detention Facility on $1 million bail.
On Friday, court officials said Littman was not on the calendar to be arraigned today. His earliest court date would be Tuesday due to the Labor Day holiday on Monday.
Last Monday around 11 a.m. Littman got into a fight with Penico's husband in the driveway on 3000 block of Stonegate Drive. During the fight, Doris was struck to the ground and hit her head on the cement driveway, according to Lee.
Doris, 59, was taken to John Muir Medical Center where she later died. An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
The neighbors have been involved in an on-going dispute regarding property, Lee said.
