    Authorities say an elderly Maine woman has died after an intruder entered her home.

    State Department of Public Safety spokesman Steve McCausland says 72-year-old Joyce Wood dialed 911 after a woman got into her house early Sunday in Burnham.

    McCausland says family members arrived at the scene before the authorities, found Wood and placed her in a vehicle in the driveway. Wood died in the car.

    McCausland says the intruder was found in Wood's home, questioned for several hours and released. No charges have been filed against the woman. She'll likely be interviewed again as evidence from inside the home is analyzed.

    The state medical examiner's office has performed an autopsy on Wood's body. The results have not been released.

    State police are investigating.
