Police Scotland say the attack on Edinburgh pensioner Eleanor Whitelaw in her Morningside home is now being treated as murder.
Robert Buczek, 23, was initially charged with attempted murder and assault to severe injury and danger of life when he appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Monday.
Mrs Whitelaw, 85, was taken to hospital two weeks ago, but it was announced earlier this morning that she had died.
Last week we asked you to help us track down pupils from Glasgow's St Mungo's Academy in Bridgeton, who spoke to the BBC in 2007, just minutes before the city found out its bid to host the Commonwealth Games had been successful.

They were the east end's new generation, who could be in line to benefit from promises of jobs, homes and new opportunities - if the Games came to Glasgow.
So, did the Games deliver? Find out here.
An 85-year-old woman who was found seriously injured in her Edinburgh home has died.

Celtic's assistant manager John Collins has told BBC Scotland Legia Warsaw will be a "step up" from KR Reykjavik.
Speaking at Glasgow Airport as the team flew out to Poland for tomorrow night's Champions League qualifier, Collins said: "There's no doubt it's going to be a tough match.
"We watched them last week in Dublin. Good team - they scored four goals so at this stage of the tournament you're not going to play against any mugs. There's no doubt it's a step up in quality from Reykjavik.
"It's better to play them away from home first then get them back to Murrayfield. But we're going to have to play well - they're organised, they're quite quick and they score goals."
Celtic's match tomorrow kicks off at 19:45, with the return leg in Edinburgh on 6 August.
This morning we're taking your views on stop and search - does the system affect your trust in the police?
We're also going to talking about curbing the spread of germs - is it time to end the handshake?

Shooting, athletics, swimming, cycling and gymnastics... could Scotland win one more medal to make it our best ever Commonwealth Games?
Scots gold medal winner Libby Clegg is currently chatting with Good Morning Scotland's Gary Robertson.

A driver has been killed in a two-car road crash on the A87 at Druim nan Cleochd on the Isle of Skye.
The collision took place at about 16:20 on Monday.
If you are coming to Glasgow by train, Central, Argyle Street, Queen Street, Exhibition Centre and Mount Florida stations are all going to be extremely busy.
And don't forget it takes about 15 minutes - probably longer given the crowds - to walk to Hampden from the Battlefield area where the railway station is.
You can also get to the athletics at Hampden by shuttle bus from Shield Road subway station and Buchanan Bus Station, or take the scheduled services 4, 5, 6 or 7.
Cathkin Braes Country Park is hosting the mountain biking competition from this afternoon, with shuttle buses dropping off and picking up on the south-bound Carmunnock Road where one lane will be closed. Factor in about 40 minutes or so to get to the spectator plaza.

Last night, Libby Clegg experienced the Hampden roar with a gold medal in the T12 100m final.
Her success meant Scotland has equalled its best total medal haul at any Commonwealth Games ever, with 33 medals.
Earlier, Team Scotland set a new national record for Commonwealth gold medals following lawn bowls success for Alex Marshall and Paul Foster. That win in the men's pairs event took them to the 12-gold mark, surpassing the tally at Melbourne in 2006.
So today could be a very special day for Team Scotland. Any more medal success, of any colour, for the men and women in blue and white will make Glasgow 2014 that extra bit special for everyone in the team.
Following a fantastic night of athletics at Hampden, Scotland's gold-winning para sprinter Libby Clegg will be chatting with Gary Robertson on Good Morning Scotland just after 08:00.
Libby, who is visually impaired, took the gold with guide runner Mikail Huggins in the T11/12 100m in 12.20 seconds.
It'll be a cloudy start for most, with any early sunshine confined to the east coast. Through the morning this brighter weather fades as cloud rolls in from the west. There'll be some very light outbreaks of rain or drizzle initially for the spine of Scotland and further west - but most will have a dry and cloudy morning.
Through the day it improves, brightening up with sunny spells developing across central and eastern Scotland, though always staying that bit more cloudy for western parts with showers on the west coast and through the Hebrides.
A brisk westerly breeze adding to a fresher feel compared with yesterday. Highs of 18C in the west and 21C in the east under sunnier skies.
