TITUSVILLE, Florida A 31-year-old woman died after a struggle inside a Brevard County home ended with the homeowner stabbing the intruder to death.

Police say Loletha Ann Davis died Monday after being taken to the hospital with head injuries and a stab wound to the chest.

The homeowner, who police have only identified as a grandmother,
told authorities Davis is the daughter of a family friend.

Police said Davis knocked on the door then began attacking the woman inside the home. The victim told police she grabbed a knife and used it to defend herself. A second woman in the home pulled Davis off the grandmother.

An investigation continues but police say no criminal charges are expected.
