A 57-year-old man faces an aggravated domestic assault charge on a woman who died earlier this year after she was found unconscious in South Burlington.

Philip Searles is due to face the charge in court Friday.

The woman was found near Kmart off Hannaford Drive in September and at the time police say she appeared to suffer some kind of medical emergency.

Thursday, Chittenden County State's Attorney T.J. Donovan said a homicide investigation is ongoing with her death. He says right now he can't tie Searles to the woman's death.
