The sister of Los Angeles Clippers star Kawhi Leonard is one of two women charged in connection with an assault that left an 84-year-old woman dead, according to a report.

On August 31, authorities found Afaf Anis Assad unconscious in a California casino bathroom, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said in a news release. Investigators determined she "may have been the victim of an assault."

Assad was transferred to a hospital near the Pechanga Resort Casino where she died from her injuries days later, the sheriff's department said.

"We are absolutely saddened over this incident and are praying for the victim and her family," President of the Pechanga Development Corporation Jared Munoa said.

Ice Cube shades Kawhi Leonard, Paul George after joining Clippers

Ice Cube shades Kawhi Leonard, Paul George after joining Clippers Hip-hop icon Ice Cube is known around California for being a fan of sports teams in the southern part of the state. He has not been bashful about supporting the NBA’s Los Angeles Lakers and the NFL’s Oakland Raiders dating back to their days in the city. It does not look like the BIG3 co-founder is as excited about the Los Angeles Clippers. With his league set to take to the Staples Center for the championship game this weekend, Ice Cube found a way to shade Paul George, Kawhi Leonard and the Los Angeles Clippers, via Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times: “I wish they would have come to the Lakers, but I guess they picked the team that they were more comfortable playing with.

Kimesha Williams, 35, and Candace Townsel, 39, were both arrested and charged with robbery and murder "due to their involvement in Assad's death", the department said.

"The suspects were quickly identified through surveillance footage and the information was immediately provided to local law enforcement," Munoa said. "We pride ourselves on putting the safety of our guests and Team Members first and are fully cooperating with law enforcement to bring these perpetrators to justice."

Williams' aunt, Denise Woodard, confirmed Williams' connection to the NBA star to The Press-Enterprise, speaking through a window at the Williams family home in Moreno Valley.

CNN has not been able to independently confirm the relationship between Williams and Leonard.

Dave Feschuk: Kawhi Leonard’s sketchy journey to L.A. triggers NBA tamper tantrum .
Last time we checked, the Los Angeles Clippers did not win the NBA championship back in June. No, you weren’t dreaming. Those were your Toronto Raptors gridlocked on those boozy buses. Still, that small bit of trivia hasn’t stopped the Clippers from engaging in something that looks an awful lot like a victory lap. Consider the latest gloating from Clippers coach Doc Rivers published this week in the L.A. Times, wherein Rivers offered up a handful of details about his franchise’s successful free-agent courtship of Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard.“I got a lot of credit, and so did Jerry West, but the guy that was the hero in all this was Lawrence Frank,” Rivers told the newspaper.
