SHERMAN, Texas -- Sherman police say a woman who was the victim of an assault last Friday has died and the alleged assailant is free on bond.

The 53-year-old victim, whose name has not been released, was attacked in the 600 block South Contemporary Street. 

Denison resident John Kennedy, 57, was arrested Tuesday afternoon in connection with the assault.

Police said the victim had initially been taken to a Sherman-area hospital for treatment but was later airlifted to a medical facility in the Dallas area, where she died. The Collin County Medical Examiner's office will conduct an autopsy.

At this time, Kennedy is charged with assault causing bodily injury. Court records show he was freed Thursday after posting $100,000 bond.

Police had no further comment as the investigation continues.
