LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- An Arkansas television anchorwoman found beaten at her home this week has died in a hospital.

An official at St. Vincent Infirmary Medical Center says 26-year-old Anne Pressly died Saturday.

She was beaten around the head and was being kept sedated in a hospital. She couldn't communicate with her family or police.

She was discovered Monday morning a half-hour before she was to appear on the "Daybreak" program on ABC affiliate KATV. Her mother went to her home after she didn't answer her regular wake-up call.

Police haven't identified a suspect.
