New Bedford, Mass. - A 98-year-old woman has been indicted on a second-degree murder charge that accuses her of strangling her 100-year-old roommate in a Massachusetts nursing home.

A grand jury on Friday returned the indictment against Laura Lundquist. A judge sent her to a state mental hospital for a competency evaluation.

Her roommate, Elizabeth Barrow, was found dead with a plastic bag over her head at the Brandon Woods Nursing Home in Dartmouth, Mass., on Sept. 24.

Barrow's son, Scott Barrow, declined to comment on the indictment. He has said Lundquist made threatening remarks to his mother about the number of visitors his mother received and said she would outlive Barrow.

Nursing home officials have said the women refused chances to switch rooms and were friendly to each other.
