UTICA - Brian Brewczynski, the man accused of beating his girlfriend to death in their home, is in the hospital.

The 32-year-old Brewczynski was scheduled to appear in Utica City Court Wednesday morning for a hearing on a first-degree manslaughter charge. Mohawk Valley Health System says he is in stable condition.

Brewczynski is accused of killing 49-year-old Cheri Saupp in the William Street apartment they shared. She was found unconscious on the morning of May 18, and later pronounced dead at St. Elizabeth Medical Center. Police say she suffered head injuries.
Brewczynski is being held on $100,000 bail.

A search of our news archives shows Brewczynski was arrested in 2012 for allegedly attacking a security officer in the emergency room of St. Luke's hospital in Utica. Police say he was high on bath salts at the time.
